The Government has accepted the School Teachers' Review Body’s recommendations in full to uplift the minima and maxima of all pay ranges and allowances by 2.75%. To help schools implement the teachers’ pay award, the Department for Education is investing an additional £105 million into the existing Teachers’ Pay Grant this financial year. This is on top of the £321 million funding that schools are receiving this year to implement the residual 2018/19 pay award.
