Briefing Note Teachers Pay Award 2017

Branch Secretaries cc for info

Further to a meeting with Dean Jackson earlier today (24 August 2017), the attached is the briefing note confirming the LA position with regards to the implementation of the teachers’ pay award for 2017/18.

In summary, the LA will be applying 2% uplift across the whole of the main pay range and 1% uplift across the whole of the other pay ranges and allowance ranges.

This note will be shared with Head Teachers but as you are aware, it is for individual schools to determine the interpretation of the pay award at a local level.
