    The Johnson and the other one (the loser) are promising big spending, but contradicted by their tax plans, and no idea of where such funding might come. This was always the Tory argument against anything Labour had in a manifesto, but the Tories are now the desperate clingon party, who will promise anything to remain in power which, of course, they will drop like the proverbial "hot cakes" as soon as they have a majority.

    It's a headline - nothing more.

    Utterly idiotic decision.

    Pay us more but keep already broken budgets the same. Eejits.

    What it means is that teachers will get paid more, but there will be fewer teachers as their jobs will be taken by HLTAs/CSs etc.

    Is it ( the rise ) to be based on ‘performance ‘ ?

    Our son in the Armed Forces - if it happens will it be backdated / when to take effect ? Can’ t see anything relating to that ...

    The rise applies to TAs / HLTAs / CSs too - so less money required, but still more from a budget which is already insufficient to cover current staffing costs.

    Wonder if the MAT CEOs will give themselves 2.75% too?

    We have four support staff going in four days to cover our gaping budget shortfall ....

    I find this insulting.

    Now why would they do something like that?

    Moving the decimal place is a true reflection of their worth.

    Our staff has halved over the last three years. All down to budget.

    I know of schools going down to a 4.5 day timetable... I'm sure there are people on here who know of schools on 4 day timetables...

    It's an embarrassment.

    The rise is partly to ease retention.

    I've seen a couple of vacancies for apprentice TAs, as if they're not paid peanuts anyway. It's just a way of getting them even cheaper still. It's not fair. People deserve a decent wage for working.

    You would do well to remember, “out of nothing, comes nothing”. It might also be because we have a snap GE looming:)

    And yet teachers still vote for this government. Talk about a lack of joined up thinking.

    If they limit themselves to 2.75% I will be surprised, @chelsea2.
