Response to DfE consultation on STRB 28th report

04 September 2018

ASCL has responded to the Consultation on the Secretary of State’s Response to the School Teachers’ Review Body (STRB) Twenty-Eighth Report 2018. 

The STRB’s recommendation on the matter was clear: a 3.5% uplift to all pay and allowance ranges for teachers and school leaders.  The Government’s proposal to reject the STRB’s recommendation on the grounds of affordability will further exacerbate the recruitment and retention crisis and we are calling on the Government to reconsider and fully fund and implement the STRB’s recommendations.  Read our response and a joint union letter.
