Commenting on the news regarding public sector pay increases, including teachers, Chris Keates, General Secretary (Acting) of NASUWT- The Teachers’ Union, said:
“Once again the Government has been sitting on the Report from the School Teachers’ Review Body for weeks and chooses not to release it until schools are in the process of breaking up for the summer.
“Whilst what the headline pay award may be has been released today, all of the detail of the Review Body Report has been withheld.  As we know from past experience, the devil will be in the detail of the pay award and this will need to be reviewed before any definitive comment can be made on the headline announcement.
“The outcome of the School Teachers’ Review Body Report and the Secretary of State’s response is subject to statutory consultation and disgracefully once again this will be conducted while teachers and headteachers are on their summer break.
“It is unacceptable that the Government has yet again failed to deal with these issues in a timely manner to ensure that teachers and headteachers are able to return in September with a clear understanding of the position on their pay.”
