Unlocking the potential in every child.

This press release from the DfES outlines the pay reforms that have been in the pipeline for some time.

The sentiment that the best teachers can be paid more and progress up the pay scale more rapidly is one thing. What they don’t mention is that schools are so hard up that they will not be able to pay teachers any more and there will be financial pressure to hold teachers down.

The result of this reform could well be that teachers are, in general, paid considerably less which certainly would not raise the status of the profession!
