School head teachers and deputies are turning down pay rises to help their schools keep financially afloat, reports the Times Educational Supplement (p4).

Secondary Heads Association president Peter Miller told the union's annual conference that he had heard from 'half a dozen' senior teachers who had refused pay increases, that some schools were so underfunded they could have to send students homes for an afternoon a week and many were unable to teach the full national curriculum.

He called for a£3bn funding boost to restore the standard of British schools to that of the 1970s.
