The Department has been able to fund the additional investment of £105 million into the existing Teachers’ Pay Grant through reprioritising funding from within the Department’s existing 2019-20 budgets. This includes additional headroom funding that has become available as a result of adjustments to forecasts, where expected spend is now lower than anticipated when budgets were set. Where the Department has identified available resources, it has prioritised it to the front line.
