    60000 is more than 50000, I now understand why you think millions can be saved by sacking kitchen staff on minimum wage.

    Really! That is certainly news to me.

    Schools are about educating children. What seems to happen a lot now is the most ineffective teachers are systematically moved to the place where they can do the least damage: management. You can usually tell those that have because their practice shows little to no pedagogical knowledge.

    IN my school that rise will cost us around £25,000.
    The 2% increase we will be having to our budget will largely be going on Teacher point rises, COVID costs and inflation and so I am now about £20,000 short.
    My teachers deserve that rise (Much more than that of course) but the next Assistant at my school who leaves will not be replaced and I will have to find other savings.

    This Government is continuing to hugely underfund schools and teachers need to make sure people know that this rise is only a 'good' one in comparison to the last 10 years of Tory rule and austerity.

    We actually don’t have pay scales at my place so individual teachers will be paid different amounts according to their non-teaching experience, qualifications, teaching and contribution to school life and relationship with SMT.

    So we have some teachers on £60,000 and others on £18,000 for doing effectively the same job.

    Relationship with SMT! Love it but sadly sometimes true!

    So you are taking the Harvey Weinstein casting couch approach to teaching?
    I am intrigued as to how a teacher's ability to turn tricks adds to the schooling experience for a student?

    I'd be on £10 000 in no time. Way too old and knackered for all that malarkey!

    It does happen. We all know heads who promote their friends ( not necessarily with benefits.) But an unpleasant thought has just occured to me. What about Theheadteacher's office? Is he/she employing a spouse/lover?

    Do you really think that he / she is employing anyone at all?

    Can't see it myself. They'd have to find one first...;)
