My right hon. Friend the Secretary of State has proposed to accept the recommendations of the School Teachers' Review Body for a pay award of 2.45 per cent. for school teachers in England and Wales from 1 September 2008. This would mean that all teachers currently in service and who remain in service on 1 September 2008 would receive a minimum uplift of 2.45 per cent. About 40 per cent. of teachers progress to a higher point in any one year and these teachers would therefore receive additional increases.
