Not using the national Teachers’ Pay increases for 2019?

Teachers' Pay increases for 2019

Using the National Scales? Please see our Teachers’ Pay Scales 2019 blog.

Teachers’ Pay increases for 2019 have now been agreed, but is your academy or MAT following the national scales in your budgeting software?

As academies and MATs increase in numbers, so does the freedom over what these academies pay their staff. Many academies will pay their staff differently to the government recommendations. Some Local Authorities also choose to have their own scales that differ slightly to the National Scales.

SBS Online budget management software users benefit from Custom Pay Scales. These scales are uploaded to a school, academy or MAT’s SBS Online budgeting planner, who can then update the scales each year, ensuring the rates are correct.

Creating Custom Scales is one way that SBS Online is flexible to enable users to forecast staffing costs accurately.


How SBS Online users can utilise Custom Pay Scales

Custom Scales can be imported into your SBS Online planner and then only need to be updated when the rate has been approved for the scales the next year. Please contact the service desk for a help guide on how this can be completed.

When a school or MAT uses custom scales, they can still apply inflation to their budget to show an estimated increase to their salary each year, for accurate forecasting of teacher increases before official scale values are confirmed. As with the national scales, this inflation would need to be removed once the custom scales have been updated.


If you are using custom scales and are unsure on how to update them, please contact the service desk on 0345 222 1551 • Option 8, or email sbsonline@schoolbusinessservices.co.uk for help.
