The Secretary of State for Education, my right hon. Friend Michael Gove, remit letter to the independent School Teachers' Review Body (STRB) sets out his aim of reforming the teachers' pay system in order to raise the status of the profession and contribute to improving the standard of teaching in our schools.

The Secretary of State's evidence to the STRB, which has been published on the Department's website, makes the case for changing the current system and provides some potential options for the STRB's consideration. The STRB is currently consulting with a wide range of stakeholders and is due to submit its recommendations to the Secretary of State in the autumn.
