When Does the Pay Increase Start?

    Could anybody confirm when teachers can expect the 2.75% pay increase? Will it be seen in wages this year, or later? I'm confused!

    Should be in your next pay. Some schools give it at the end of October and include the back pay.

    If you have passed your PM you should also have that pay back dated to September 1st.

    My head said it hadn't been confirmed yet? When it is confirmed it will be backdated. Doesn't apply to me though as it's at the top and the bottom of the pay spines!

    Confirmed just this past Fri, at the 2.75% rise for all pay ranges, MP, UP, leadership. Does your school pay policy only apply it to the top and bottom?

    The only people who must get a rise are those earning below the new minima. STPCD says Except for teachers and leaders on the minima of their respective ranges or group ranges, schools must determine – in accordance with their own pay policy – how to take account of the uplift to the national framework in making individual pay progression decisions.

    I would hope that all schools would honour the rise across the whole scale, but they don't have to unless their written policy says so.

    I didn’t get it in September but just had October payslip and it’s not on there either! Do I go in all guns blazing tomorrow?

    HT and governors not done the meetings for it to be paid in October I suspect. Quietly do not give any good will or free time to the school until you receive your back pay. No activities after school or lunch time.

    Speak to your HR department about a time frame for the pay increase. We have been told in my school to expect the increase and back pay in our December pay packet

    Given that your school does not have to give it to you at all unless you are at the bottom of the pay scale, there doesn't seem to be a lot of point. But in fairness, schools should be giving people an idea of when to expect it. Pay rises are often agreed in October, meaning that November, or even December, is a likely time to get the money, both the official increase and movement up the scale. In either case, it should be backdated to September.

    I’ve just seen my payslip for November. It includes the new pay rise and the backdated arrears to September. It will be in the bank later this week. Schools should keep their teachers informed though. No one kept me in the loop about the timing I just knew how the system usually works.
