STPRB - twenty third report 2014

1 July 2014

STPRB - Twenty Third Report 2014 Proposed Changes

The School Teachers Pay Review Body has published its latest report detailing recommendations for changes to teachers pay and conditions. The report is known as the Twenty Third Report 2014. We have summarised the proposals for you below, however, a full copy of the report can be found here. Focus areas of the report
  1. Pay for Leadership Group
  2. Allowances and Safeguarding
  3. Non Pay Conditions
Considerations that the STPRB took into account when preparing this report?
  • Pace of change in sector
  • School led improvement creating new roles, including leadership of multiple sites
  • Challenge of preparing for curriculum and assessment reforms
  • Impact of academies in beginning to shape the market for able leaders
Recommendations from STPRB Twenty Third Report 2014:
  1. Provide a clear and useable framework for setting the pay of school leaders, enabling governing bodies to match pay accountabilities and the local needs of the school.
  2. Provide greater freedom in setting the level of Teaching & Learning Responsibility Payments ; whilst retaining the main allowances used by schools and the exiting safeguarding provisions.
  3. Remove unnecessary detailed guidance; on non pay conditions whilst retaining the core statutory protections on teachers working hours and time for planning, preparation and assessment.
STRB believe their recommendations will:
  1. Help schools to respond more effectively in a rapidly changing sector and offer appropriate reward to high quality leaders who are so crucial to raising standards.
  2. Enable Governing bodies, leadership teams and teachers to exercise professional judgement at local level.
  3. Encourage teachers to seek early promotion into management roles.
  4. Help schools to attract and retain talented leaders.
For further information on how the report could affect you as well as the practical implications for your school, please contact our HR team.
