Teachers to receive overall 1 per cent pay rise

12-07-2017

Education secretary Justine Greening has outlined a deal that she said “is consistent with the government’s public sector 1 per cent pay policy”.
 
Teachers at the bottom of the main pay scale will receive an automatic 2 per cent increase but Ms Greening said they only represented “a small proportion of teachers”.
 
The education secretary also indicated that schools would have to fund the cost of any pay increases out of their own budgets.
 
Last week Russell Hobby, the general secretary of the NAHT heads’ union, warned that the government would be making “promises with other people’s money” unless additional funding is provided to cover any pay increase.
 
A Department for Education spokesperson said: “We recognise and value the hard work of teachers which is why we have accepted the pay deal proposed by the independent School Teachers’ Review Body, in line with the 1 per cent public sector pay policy.”
