2018 Pay Award

Discussion in 'Headteachers' started by nelwd, Sep 27, 2019.

    Good morning all,

    I live and work in the Isle of Man, which is in many ways separate from the UK, but traditionally our pay has always been linked to English schools.

    I am currently part of an ongoing dispute with regard to the interpretation of the 2018 Pay Award. I have been told by one of my colleagues that some LEA's in England applied the 3.5% increase to Heads, where as as far as I was aware all LEA's had to stick to SPCD recommendations and only award 1.5% for Heads. I am aware that non LEA schools set their own pay policy and are free to do what they wish.

    Does anybody know of any LEA's that applied a higher than 1.5% pay award in 2018 to Heads?

    Many thanks

    Whilst I don't have anything new to bring to this, I'd love to see if you have made any progress with this.

    I haven't heard of a single LA that applied above 1.5% to the pay award for heads. If they did, I'd love to know where they got the money from!!

    I can't see how "some LEA's in England applied the 3.5% increase to Heads" could happen because it isn't up to LAs to decide what increase heads (or any other teacher) receives. The individual governing body of each LA schools decides both (a) its own pay ranges for heads/leadership and (b) what increase/movement up the pay range they will give to their head. LAs have no role in it.
