Pay offer for school business leaders 'unacceptable' says NAHT

Responding to the new pay offer for school business leaders, Paul Whiteman, general secretary of school leaders’ union NAHT, said:

“Yet again, the pay offer put forward for support staff would leave school business leaders with one of the lowest pay awards across the education sector, and far below inflation, meaning another real-terms pay cut.

“It is completely unacceptable that some of the most experienced and senior leaders in our schools continue to be under-valued and under-paid.

“Urgent action is needed to resolve this. In the short-term this must include a significant pay increase for all teachers and leaders, including school business leaders, fully funded by the government.

“Longer-term, the government must develop a national framework that defines the role of school business leader and aligns with other school leadership roles."
