The table reflects the structural changes to teachers' pay over the years in question, including the introduction of the upper pay scale in 2000, and assumes a rate of progression achieved by the majority of classroom teachers. Some teachers could have progressed to higher pay levels due to excellent performance or relevant previous experience attracting a higher starting point, or may have moved to the Advanced Skills Teacher or Leadership Group spines. The figures are based on the pay rates for England and Wales. Pay rates are higher for the London area. The figures do not include the additional pay teachers may receive which currently include:
Teaching and Learning Responsibility paymentswhich currently range from £2,306 to £11,275.
Special Educational Needs allowancescurrently £1,818 or £3,597.
Recruitment and retention incentives and benefitsas approved by the governing body or local authority.

The table reflects the structural changes to teachers' pay over the years in question, including the shortening of the pay scale and assimilation to the new shortened pay scale in 2002. It assumes that all newly-qualified classroom teachers started on the lowest point of the pay scale, though until September 2002 all newly-qualified teachers would have started above the minimum point if they had a good honours degree. In addition, those with relevant previous experience may receive one or more additional points. The figures are based on the pay rates for England and Wales. Pay rates are higher for the London area. No allowances or incentives are included.
Mr. Jenkins: To ask the Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families what assessment he has made of the effect on the educational attainment of pupils of being taught by teachers who have no formal qualification in the subject they are teaching; and how many such teachers there are, broken down by (a) region and (b) subject. 
The following table shows the number of teachers teaching each subject and their highest post A-level qualification in that subject. For example, it shows that in November 2002 an estimated 28,200 teachers were teaching maths and, of these, between 22 per cent. and 26 per cent. held no post A-level qualification in maths. The same information is not available by region.
