The School Teachers’ Pay Review body has today published its recommendations for teachers pay from 1st September 2020.
In response the Secretary of State for Education, Gavin Williamson, has accepted the recommendations in full and has proposed:
It is anticipated that schools will fund this uplift from the previously announced increase in core funding from the DfE over the period 2020 – 2023.
At this stage the changes announced are provisional. There now follows an 8 week statutory consultation period until 14th September following which the revised School Teachers Pay and Conditions Document will be published and the new salary ranges confirmed.
Schools are strongly advised not to review their pay policy or make any decisions regarding pay until the pay award is confirmed.
Pay decisions will continue to be based on evidence of performance through appraisal so schools should plan to complete their end of year review meetings with teaching staff.
There is no additional specific guidance on how schools should conduct their end of year reviews – but previous DfE advice was clear that they should seek to ensure that no teacher is at a detriment where school closure or disruption due to Covid has impacted on their ability to meet performance targets.
