In response to the recommendations in the STRB’s 28th Report, from 1 September 2018 the following has been confirmed in the 2018 version of the STPCD:
- a 3.5% uplift has been applied to the statutory minima and maxima of the main pay range and of the unqualified teachers’ pay range.
- a 2% uplift to the statutory minima and maxima of the upper pay range, the leading practitioner pay range and all allowances across all pay ranges.
- a 1.5% uplift to the leadership pay ranges (including headteacher groups).
Except for teachers and leaders on the minima of their respective ranges or group ranges, schools must determine – in accordance with their own pay policy – how to take account of the uplift to the national framework in making individual pay progression decisions.
All pay uplifts will be back-dated to 1 September 2018.
Academy Trusts who operate in line with STPCD pay awards will need to notify their schools of how the above will be implemented and also confirm if any additional pay awards will be made to those pay points excluded from the above.
LA schools will need to await further guidance from their employer as to what additional pay awards will be made locally in addition to the above.
School pay policies will need to be revised in line with the latest release and FusionHR’s model policy and pay statements will be uploaded to our document downloads shortly.
