Teachers Pay

Asked whether it was right for head teachers to be earning more than the Prime Minister, the PMS said that the department had responded to this. There was already a process underway, whereby the Secretary of State was consulting with the School Teachers Review Body on a number of pay issues, including a proposal to cap head teachers pay.

Asked if there was a view that pay should be kept under consideration, the PMS replied that there was a general view that the country was living beyond its means and we needed to do something about that. Part of the answer was to look very hard at what people were paid in the public sector.

When asked if there would be a cap on head teachers pay, the PMS said that there was a discussion happening at the moment between the Secretary of State and the School Teachers Review Body to look at pay issues generally. There was a proposal being discussed on capping head teachers pay.
