Pay and conditions for teachers in residential establishments (England and Wales)

Pay and conditions for teachers in residential establishments are aligned with those in the School Teachers' Pay and Conditions Document (STPCD) or the new Pay and Conditions Document for Wales, as well as the Burgundy Book. 

However, there are a small number of allowances and pay scales that are not covered by the above provisions but are instead agreed by the Joint Negotiating Committee for Teachers in Residential Establishments (JNCTRE), of which NAHT is a member. 

The 2020 circular has now been released with details of pay and conditions for teachers in residential establishments that are not covered by the School Teachers' Pay and Conditions Document, the new Pay and Conditions Document for Wales or the Burgundy Book. They are located below.

Recent consultations and other documents

Consultation on deferring school starting age: NAHT(NI) draft response

We are concerned at the advancement of this proposal as the evidential basis for this consultation is highly limited. We contend that the current proposal should be retracted. The proposal fails to reflect the experience of pupils, school leaders, parents and the whole school community. Given the significance of this potential policy change, it is essential that the perspectives of all stakeholders are considered. We know that members are operating in a business-critical environment and will have limited or no time to engage with consultation exercises, however, we encourage members to consider responding to this important consultation and copy our response to complete your individual response.
