Lord Agnew: No MAT CEO should receive bigger pay increase than their teachers

Tes reports that Lord Agnew tells MAT chairs that not all academies are being “rigorous” enough on executive remuneration, and that CEOs should see their pay cut if performance declines.

Lord Agnew also said that MAT chief executives should see a reduction in their pay if there is a downturn in the performance of their schools. 

In a letter sent to MAT chairs, he said: “Eileen Milner, the new CEO of the [Education and Skills Funding Agency], has recently written to a number of single- academy trusts where remuneration for a trust employee is above £150,000, and will shortly be writing to MATs where this applies too. 

“CEO and senior pay should reflect the improvements they make to schools’ performance and how efficiently they run their trusts. I would not expect the pay of a CEO or other non-teaching staff to increase faster than the pay award for teachers.

“I intend to continue to challenge this area of governance. My view is that we should see a reduction in CEO pay where the educational performance of the schools in the trust declines over several years.”
