Commenting on the impact of the Budget on the devolved nations, Dr Patrick Roach, General Secretary of the NASUWT-The Teachers’ Union, said:

“Today’s CSR will affect the money available to spend on education and teaching in Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales.

“Pupils, across the UK, deserve to benefit from a commitment to increased investment in their education and the teachers that teach them. The current pressures on schools from the impact of the pandemic must be reflected when ministers come to set their own budgets for the forthcoming year.

“We will expect ministers in the devolved nations to exercise their powers to match or better the commitment given by the Chancellor today on public sector pay, providing every teacher with an above inflation, fully funded pay award which represents a real-terms pay increase.”
