School leaders’ pay review challenged

ASCL has responded to the recent pay review claiming the proposals arbitrarily discriminate against some school leaders, sending a message that headteachers’ work is not valued and potentially exacerbating a recruitment crisis.

The report recommends 1% uplift to the minima of the main pay range with a potential 2% on the maxima, subject to performance, and 1% to the minima/maxima of other teachers pay ranges and allowances. The potential 2% at the maxima is proposed to signal improved scope for progression for good graduates over three to five years.

However, for those on leadership the recommendation is for an uplift of 1% on the minimum of the pay ranges only, effectively freezing pay for the majority.
