The following table provides the gross average salary of full-time regular qualified teachers in service in local authority maintained schools in cash terms and real terms for York local authority, in each March, 1997 to 2009 and November 2010 to November 2011.

The cash terms decrease between 2010 and 2011 will have been impacted by a reduction in the number of secondary local authority maintained schools and an increase in the number of academies. This increases the proportion of primary teachers in the local authority maintained sector, who have tower average salaries.

(1) Teachers of all grades including school leadership. Regular teachers are those with a permanent or fixed term contract of 28 days or more. (2) Real terms figures calculated at 2010-11 prices using 27 June 2013 GDP deflators. These are available from the following web HM treasury web link together with further information about the methodology employed: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/gdp-deflators-at-market-prices-and-money-gdp-march-2013 (3) Provisional. (4) Database of Teacher Records. (5) Source: School Workforce Census. (6) The cash terms decrease between 2010 and 2011 is likely to be due to a reduction in the number of secondary local authority maintained schools and an increase in the number of academies. This increases the proportion of primary teachers in the local authority maintained sector, who have lower average salaries. (7) Figures are not sufficiently reliable.
