News and Support from The NASUWT
“The 23rd Report was a defining moment for the Review Body’s independence and integrity.
“It is clear that it has accepted the detailed evidence of the NASUWT that no case had been made to remove the important statutory contractual provisions for classroom teachers.
“Teachers will welcome the retention of the statutory national framework of conditions of service, including the important provisions on working time, holidays, PPA and cover.
“The acceptance by the Review Body of the NASUWT evidence that the provision on SEN allowances and TLRs should remain a feature of the pay system confirms the importance of having a coherent structure of rewards and allowances for classroom teachers taking on additional responsibilities for teaching and learning.
“At a time of major change within the education service, when schools are reviewing their staffing structures, the acceptance of the NASUWT’s detailed representations on the retention of safeguarding will provide an important reassurance for teachers.
“The clearer and more disciplined system recommended by the Review Body for leadership pay is a move in the right direction but still leaves unfinished the long overdue work on leadership roles and responsibilities.”
