Unpicking barriers to pay equality

At the end of 2021, NAHT launched a joint report Closing the Gender Pay Gap in Education: A leadership imperative. This report found that despite the existence of a broad national pay framework, men typically earn more than women regardless of school phase or structure – the more senior the position, the wider the gulf becomes. 

Due to the limited published data, it wasn’t possible to explore other factors, such as ethnicity, disability or sexual orientation, which may also impact on salary equity, although we know from other research that people with disabilities or those from a Black, Asian or minority ethnic backgrounds can face additional pay penalties.

NAHT would like to use the findings and recommendations from the report to form the basis of a  virtual member roundtable, sharing experiences and unpicking what is needed to ensure that school leadership (and the journey to it) is valued appropriately and everyone is paid equitably for the work they do.

If you are an NAHT member and would like to take part in this session (see details below), please email policy@naht.org.uk.
