Funding for teachers’ pay rises is to be limited to an annual 1 per cent for four years between 2016-2020.
Chancellor George Osborne announced in the budget today that public sector pay rises would be one per cent for 2016-17, 2017-18, 2018-19 and 2019-20. A Treasury spokeswoman confirmed to TES that this would apply to teachers.
Some teachers are set for a 2 per cent pay rise from September 2015, and the spokeswoman said this would not be affected by today’s announcement.
