An east London education action zone is set to become the first to scrap national pay and conditions and radically change the curriculum in its primary and secondary schools, the Times Educational Supplement reports (p2).

Newham LBC has plans for a competency-based pay scale. It will identify and ultimately dismiss poor teachers and reward high performers.

The zone will also be inviting the local further education college to run its courses in its secondary schools and pupils will also be able to study off-site.

Newham's director of education Ian Harrison said: 'We are not going to do anything to make pay and conditions worse. This is an area with a recruitment problem and we aim to attract teachers. We will consult the unions and schools.'
