Chat with other Scottish teachers about the pay and conditions in Scottish schools in the Scotland Pay and Conditions Group.
how does that breakdown - is it the gross or net amount?
seems like an awful lot?
ToddszeeWell the reality of the pension increase and changes to tax and NI have hit home. I have lost £90 a month.
That doesn't make sense. For the average teacher on £34,200 and with the increase in personal allowance you will pay around £10.50pm less in tax. NI will increase by around £3pm so around £7.50pm better off. The extra contributions will work out about £27 more so about £20pm net difference.
What wage are you on?
My GTCS fees were paid out last month so I'm patientely waiting to see what difference there is in tomorrow's wage slip - hoping it is not anywhere near £90!
the same pay cut planned next year folled by half of that the year after
wor to rule anyone-bring it on
OK got payslip today. On £34,200 and net difference was £20.76.
What are those with net difference of £80/£90 earning?
CT1 scale, 0.8 contract and net difference just over £15 less. I would be checking with your council to see what's happened....

I would be checking the payslip carefully as well.
Check out the calculator on the SPPA website and see what extra payment you should be paying this month for your pension.
Scroll down to the very bottom - it's the last calculator.
Anyone earning less than £40k will see no more than a £31.20 increase so anyone quoting £80/£90 are either on very high salaries or something else is included. Even someone earning £74k would have an increase of around £60 net.
