Details on the 2018/19 pay awards for staff and the DfE pay reform.
The School Teachers Review Body's (STRB) recommendations for the pay award for 2018/19 have been accepted by the government. These recommendations, which relate to the national pay ranges only and not to the pay of individual teachers, are as follows:
The minima and maxima of the pay ranges in the STPCD have been uprated accordingly.
i. Where a classroom teacher/leadership group member is paid on the minimum of their pay range/band, their salary – excluding any allowances – must be uplifted to the new minimum.
iii. For all other classroom teachers/leadership group members, schools must determine – in accordance with their own pay policy –how to take account of the uplift to the national framework in making individual pay progression decisions.
Agreement has been reached between the Employers and Union sides of the Greater London Provincial Council on the rates of pay applicable from 1 April 2018 and 1 April 2019 within the London agreement.
Within the 2018 two year pay award for support staff the national employers revised the spinal points within the grading structure to provide headroom against the new National Living Wage (NLW). This has been applied across London through the London Spinal point range and resulted in several points being left spare.
Following a recent Council meeting it has been decided that scale points 11, 16, 21 and 65 on the new NJC pay scales will be added to pay Scales 4, 5, 6 and PO12 respectively. This leaves points 17 and 22 unused.

We know that paying initial agency fees and overcoming strict rental criteria can create extra barriers to renting. That's why we do things differently.
