Pay and conditions

Updated School teachers' pay and conditions document published

Last week, the DfE published the updated School teachers’ pay and condition document (STPCD) for the academic year 2021-22. The STPCD has not changed significantly since last year. It has been updated to reflect this year’s pay award, and has added advice on payments to unqualified teachers, and for tutoring. It also reflects the additional bank holiday expected next summer, and the changes to teacher induction.

Governing boards should review their school’s pay policy in the autumn term. The STPCD and requirement to have a policy applies to teachers employed in maintained schools and to teachers in academies who were employed under the STPCD at the point where their employment transferred to the academy trust (unless they’ve since renegotiated).
