    “...teachers and other school staff will get 2.75%”


    Don’t get me wrong, I’m all for a pay rise. However...


    “It is thought the pay rises will have to be funded from existing budgets.”


    Sounds like a potential problem for many schools.

    It also misses the point that, assuming things are the same as in previous years, only those on the bottom of their scale are guaranteed a rise. Most school seem to go along with it but, as has been complained about before, some don't.

    Has there been any news as yet about whether TLRs are due to increase too?

    STRB Report states:
    "For September 2019, we recommend that all pay and allowance ranges for teachers and school leaders are uplifted by 2.75%" and on page 108 lists the recommended increases for TLRs.
    but the gov press release doesn't mention allowances specifically. Just: "The Education Secretary has today (Mon 22 July) accepted all the recommendations from the independent School Teachers’ Review Body (STRB), to raise the upper and lower boundaries of all pay ranges by 2.75 per cent."
    but is does say: "Education Secretary accepts recommendations to increase teacher pay scales by 2.75%, equivalent to £1,000 on average classroom teacher pay" which implies all recommendations have been accepted
    However of course it is up to individual schools and their pay policies how to interpret any pay rises.

    The DfE formal announcement was made yesterday. The BBC quoted The Times in saying that the rise of 2.75% would apply to teachers and "other school staff" although their specialist correspondents should have known that the pay of non-teaching staff is nothing to do with the DfE. The 2.75% is for teachers (including leadership) only. As last year it's scope is quite limited, I commented on it here.

    Although the announcement doesn't mention TLRs specifically the min and max of TLR scales in STPCD in previous years have gone up by the general % increase so I expect they will this time too. We'll have to wait for STPCD 2019 to be published to be sure. They do say they accept STRB recommendations. It doesn't mean every teacher with a TLR will automatically get the TLR increased by 2.75% though.
