The NASUWT, with the other school workforce trade unions, has negotiated a trade union recognition agreement with Ormiston Academies Trust (OAT) for consultation and collective bargaining purposes.

This provides the necessary structures for the NASUWT to meet with OAT Academies at a national level and on a regular basis in the OAT Academies Joint Consultative Committee (JCC). The JCC is where the trade unions meet with OAT Academies to negotiate on pay, conditions of service issues and on policies and procedures for teachers and other OAT Academies staff.

A copy of the trade union recognition agreement is available on the right-hand side of the page.

Teachers' Pay in Ormiston Academies

The NASUWT seeks to ensure that members in academy schools have, at least, the equivalent pay award to teachers in other maintained schools.

Teachers working in an Ormiston academy should continue to receive the same pay increase and benefits as teachers in the maintained sector. In the recognition agreement between Ormiston and the trade unions it has been established that OAT will employ all teaching staff on national terms and conditions for school teachers (the School Teachers' Pay and Conditions Document (STPCD) and Burgundy Book).
