Teacher pay rise 2019
Stripes66 · 25/10/2019 18:32
Is the teacher pay rise announced up to schools to chose to pay their teachers or are we all automatically getting it? I’ve seen a lot on the media about it but no one at work has mentioned it and I haven’t seen an increase in my September pay.

I think it is down to the schools. So LEA schools have to honour it but academies and MATs don't? I may be wrong so please don't take my word for it! Also, you won't see it in September, more likely be in as back pay from November. My school doesn't process it until performance management has been completed and it all goes in with the back pay if we move up the scale.

It was announced but I know after the discussions and ratifications, ours doesn't usually get paid until the November pay. That allows any pay reviews to go through as well so there's only one adjustment.
It is backdated though.

Thank you both x

Definitely depends on the school if you are an academy. Ours has said they will pay the full recommended increase this year and did last, but I know a colleague's wife's MAT paid 1% this year and last, so from a starting point of same place on payscale, they're now paid very different amounts.

I’m in an LEA school. Our school budget is extremely tight so I don’t know how they could do it?

It is only partly funded so I think it is up to the school (Governors I presume) to decide if they can afford the rest. I am a centrally employed teacher for an LA and have been involved with some discussions about this and we are still waiting to hear if the council will fund it. I understand we will see it in Dec or Jan with a back payment to Sep.

I’m in an academy. There was a message to say that the powers-that-be have ratified it and that it will be applied to October pay with September backdated.

Interestingly our SLT have remained totally silent on it. I suspect they think we'll forget and they can avoid paying it. Let's hope that the supermarkets, utilities companies etc also 'forget' to increase their services or my wages are going to start to pose an issue.

We were told we were getting it, but I still got the 2018 pay rate for sept and October.
Think it'll be ratified at governors this month and then applied and backdated.
It better had be!!!
