Teachers pay rise and publication of the STRB report
September 6, 2018
As previously reported, the government announced that in 2018-19 a 3.5% rise will apply to the main pay range for classroom teachers, a 2% rise will apply to the upper pay band for teachers and a 1.5% rise will apply for school leaders.
To cover the increases in pay at school level, the DfE will provide a teachers’ pay grant of £187 million in 2018-19 and £321 million to all schools in England in 2019-20. This will cover the difference between the pay award and the cost of the 1% award that schools would have expected under the previous public sector pay cap. No additional money from the Treasury has been announced and the increase in pay will be funded from within the existing Department for Education budget.
