According to Tes the announcement means the DfE is accepting the advice from the School Teachers’ Review Body (STRB), which advises it on teachers’ pay.
In a statement to Parliament, education secretary Damian Hinds said: “This year I have decided to accept in full the STRB’s recommendations for a 2.75 per cent uplift to the minima and maxima of all pay ranges and allowances.”
Today, Mr Hinds said that schools would have to fund the first 2 per cent of today’s award, and the DfE would fund the extra 0.75 per cent.
