Some experienced teachers could lose out on pay rises because of inaccurate data

    Some schools could struggle to meet the cost of the pay award because the DfE doesn’t have accurate salary information:

    ‘A headteachers' union has warned that the Department for Education “doesn’t have the right data” to accurately calculate what individual schools need to cover the cost of teachers' pay rises.

    The NAHT says there will be “winners and losers” in tomorrow’s funding allocations, which are being made from a DfE £105 million pay grant.

    The union's funding specialist, Ian Hartwright, said schools with more experienced and expensive staff would lose out in the allocations.’

    And if that wasn’t bad enough, the NEU teaching union revealed that some teachers still haven’t received last year’s pay award.


    What are your views about the issue?

    We assume Mr Hartwright has not written to Liar Johnson , Mentions expensive and experienced staff losing out. We assume these will be classroom teachers. There would be no cull or pay freezes of Chief Executives, HT's and SMT's many who have no connection with the classroom except for arriving with a clip board.
