To ask the Secretary of State for Education what the change was in the average salary of a (a) primary school teacher, (b) primary school head teacher, (c) secondary school teacher and (d) secondary school head teacher in (i) cash and (ii) real terms in each year since 2010; and if he will make a statement.
The following table provides the gross average salary of full-time regular qualified classroom teachers, head teachers and all teachers in service in publicly funded primary and secondary schools in cash terms and real terms in England, from the School Workforce Censuses in November 2010 to November 2012.
It is difficult to use the figures requested to estimate pay increases for teachers. The size of average year on year pay changes will be obscured by the inflow and outflow of teachers. For example, new entrants to the work force (mostly classroom teachers) will generally be paid much less than those people leaving, especially retiring leadership group teachers.
