1% pay rise for teachers recommended

27 June 2013

The School Teachers' Review Body has today recommended that pay for teachers should be increased by 1% from September 2013. This will apply to all elements of pay on the teaching and leadership pay scales, as well as for individual allowances.

This proposal, and the draft School Teachers Pay and Conditions Document will go through a formal consultation period for 4 weeks after which it is anticipated that the pay rise will be confirmed.

Teaching unions argued for a higher pay increase, to ensure further teaching supply, with a request that increased government funding should be made available for this. Unsurprisingly, that has not been forthcoming so the debate about attracting talent into the profession will continue. The flexibility on pay from September may give schools freedom to consider attracting staff financially, but with budgets continuing to be squeezed, very few schools will be able to offer higher salaries.
