The headline figure on the teachers’ pay award as recommended by the School Teachers’ Review Body is 3.1%. The main conclusions / recommendations from the report are: –
“For September 2020, we recommend the minimum of the MPR is increased by 5.5 per cent. We recommend that the maximum of the MPR and the minima and maxima of all other pay and allowance ranges for teachers and school leaders are uplifted by 2.75 per cent. We recommend that these uplifts apply to all four regional pay bands.
For September 2020, we recommend advisory pay points are reintroduced on the MPR and UPR. This report provides our recommendations on the levels of these pay points for 2020/21.”
The outline proposals have received government backing but there is now a statutory 8 week consultation period ending on 14/9/20. Further information will follow after the consultation is closed.
