1% pay rise for teachers confirmed

9 August 2013

The widely anticipated pay rise for teachers has now been confirmed in the School Teachers Pay and Conditions Document 2013 released yesterday. This applies to all elements of teacher pay, including TLR and SEN payments.

It has been made clear that the 1% pay rise is mandatory. This means that for all schools bound by the document, there is no option but to implement this change. Only schools who have moved away from the national terms will be able to decide whether or not to adopt this.

This development continues the squeeze on school budgets. The move to pay on the basis of performance has caused many schools to look at rewarding their excellent staff financially, but in the current financial climate, the pay rise will compound the problem of very few schools being able to afford to do so.
