Leadership pay changes afoot

30 May 2014

Yesterday saw the issue of the draft School Teachers Pay & Conditions document and as expected it includes changes in line with the pay review body report of February this year.

The slimmed down document no longer includes guidance and the key themes of more flexibility for schools, as well as pay being linked to performance continue.

The changes don't go as far as Michael Gove would have liked but it certainly moves in the direction of giving schools autonomy to tailor their approach to the school context. Time will tell whether school leaders move away from the status quo despite opposition.
