The Secretary of State has accepted the recommendations of the School Teachers’ Review Body on pay for 2015-2016 and has published a draft 2015 school teachers’ pay and conditions document (STPCD) for consultation.
The draft 2015 STPCD allows for fixed pay scale points to be adopted as the basis for teachers’ pay progression, including adopting previous STPCD pay scale points uprated as appropriate.
Although the finalised 2015 STPCD may not be published until after the end of the current school year, local authorities, schools and academy employers should now begin discussion on school pay policies before the end of the school year, not least because the obligation to consult with employees and their representative requires meaningful consultation which cannot take place during the summer holiday.
The joint union document below, produced by NAHT, ATL, NUT, Voice and UCAC, not only provides a useful structure for consultation but will have buy-in from teachers.
NAHT is continuing to lobby hard and press the case for an acceptable position on leadership pay for our members.
