Classification Structure for Principals:

The Crown Employees (Teachers in Schools and Related Employees) Salaries and Conditions Award 2017 details the new principal classification structure based on complexity of schools which commenced in 2016. Please view information on the Classification structure for Principals at https://education.nsw.gov.au/about-us/careers-at-education/Salary-and-benefits/salary-and-awards/awards-and-determinations/teachers-award-initiatives/principal-classification-structure-faqs

The classification and remuneration of our school principals is based on school complexity, as measured through each school’s RAM allocation. As part of the ongoing application of the new structure a review of thresholds and outcomes will occur on an annual basis. The principal classification for this school is Principal Level 4 for 2021.

  • Be appointed under the previous classification structure which will provide them with a remuneration package valued at $204,827 Which is a base salary of $185,242 plus leave loading and employer’s contribution to superannuation.
