Pay and conditions for teachers in residential establishments (England and Wales)

Pay and conditions for teachers in residential establishments are aligned with those in the School Teachers' Pay and Conditions Document (STPCD) or the new Pay and Conditions Document for Wales, as well as the Burgundy Book. 

However, there are a small number of allowances and pay scales that are not covered by the above provisions but are instead agreed by the Joint Negotiating Committee for Teachers in Residential Establishments (JNCTRE), of which NAHT is a member. 

The 2020 circular has now been released with details of pay and conditions for teachers in residential establishments that are not covered by the School Teachers' Pay and Conditions Document, the new Pay and Conditions Document for Wales or the Burgundy Book. They are located below.

 Nursery and Foundation Stage Conferences
• Foundation Stage Conference:  Thursday, 19 November 2020
• Nursery School Conference:  Friday, 20 November 2020 
Venue: Hilton Hotel, Templepatrick

NAHT(NI) are delighted to have Anna Ephgrave to deliver two conferences, a day aimed at Foundation Stage practitioners and a day for Nursery practitioners.   Anna taught in the early years in English schools for 30 years and is now an independent consultant, trainer and author, supporting practitioners both in the United Kingdom and abroad. She has written four very successful books for David Fulton, Routledge: The Reception Year in Action, The Nursery Year in Action, Year One in Action and Planning in the Moment. Anna is passionate about children having autonomy and choice in child-initiated play. This ensures that each child can follow their interests and become deeply engaged which results in outstanding progress and meaningful learning.      This event can be used as a whole staff/team professional development opportunity and Principals may wish to use a Staff Development Day for this purpose. Further information will be issued soon, but in the meantime, please hold these dates in your diary!
