    So, the new year has started and the first pay slip for teachers has been handed out (at least from my local authority).

    I was wondering, who has had the 2.75% increase? If so, when were you told about it from the school. If not, has it been mentioned to you or completely ignored?

    Was this supposed to begin in September, and was it mandatory for schools to implement it?

    I think the increase was only approved a couple of weeks ago. As schools only have to apply it at certain points, they presumably each had to determine their increases (even if those were 2.75% at all pay points), and I suspect it won't all have happened in time for September payrolls. You'll probably get it backdated next month.

    That’s exactly what will happen. Then any incremental increase will probably come the month after that, also backdated.

    We have just been informed everyone will get their 2.75% in their November paypacket but backdated to September, it has just been agreed by Governors

    I think it should be, but it isn't mandatory for schools to give everybody a 2.75% increase. All that has happened is an increase in the minimum and maximum for each pay band, and as long as schools respect these, they can do whatever they like, as long as they comply with their own pay policy.

    No increase and nothing said, which is a bit odd because an email has gone out telling support staff they will get their increases in October (backdated to September).

    I thought it was supposed to be backdated to April? We haven't heard anything yet.

    Yes this ^^^

    And the min/max increase is only statutory in LA schools. Academies that have adopted STPCD would also have to follow it under their own pay policies. Academies not using STPCD can ignore it completely if they want to (other than for any TUPE staff).

    Under STPCD it backdates to 1st September, it always has done. An academy not using STPCD could theoretically backdate to April if it wanted to but I've not heard of one doing that. Check your pay policy or ask your union rep.

    What Rott said. Academies do not need to give any pay rise.

    We are on a pay freeze while the school consults about coming out of the TPS :-(

    You must be in a private school though, so the government announcement about a 2.75% increase doesn't apply to you anyway.

    Teachers eventually got an email in mid-October saying we will get the pay increase in November, backdated to September.

    Cost of living payrises were given in April until 2005. Point increases have always been September, as far as I know.

    The poster who asked about April pay increases has only been a teacher since 2007.

    LOL We have come out of the TPS and have had no pay increase for the second year in a row!
    There are lots of advantages to being in the independent sector, but pay and conditions are not always two of them!

    Our school just applied the 2.75%, backdates to start of academic year, across the whole payscale not just top and bottom.

    But not everyone else reading this thread did.
