Following consideration of the evidence of other statutory consultees, we have now submitted our supplementary evidence to the STRB.
Much of our supplementary evidence was in response to the DfE’s proposals
for higher increases to the main pay range with significantly lower, below inflation awards proposed for the upper pay range and leadership pay range.
Whilst we support the Department’s commitment to increasing starting salaries to £30,000, this cannot be at the expense of other pay ranges. It is our view that any increases to starting salaries must be applied to all pay ranges and allowances, and fully funded by the government.
You can read our supplementary evidence here
and Appendix 1 here
. We will be meeting with the STRB in April to give further evidence.
