The Government has confirmed initial details in relation to teacher pay arrangements and funding for 2019 / 2020.
Schools will be asked to fund 2% themselves from existing budgets, with the Government confirming there will be additional funding available via the teachers’ pay grant, for the remaining 0.75% of the increase.
This announcement does not automatically mean all teachers will receive a 2.75 % increase as there are still local decisions to be made by schools in relation to how this is applied. There are differing obligations for maintained schools and academies.
Please stay tuned for a specialist bulletin once we have further information and the STPCD 2019 has been shared.
