Discussion of the proposals, and ideas on their detailed implementation, will inform any suggestions or recommendations which the Review Body decides to make in its next report, early in 1995.
Successive annual remits from the Secretary of State since the Review Body was established in 1991 have included a request that it considers possible ways in which pay in schools might be more closely related to performance.
In 1992 the Review Body issued a consultative paper on a 'whole school' approach which led to discussion of the issues involved. Since then the Review Body has looked at how the pay of individuals might be linked more closely to their performance.
Under the scheme proposed for discussion by the Review Body, participation would be voluntary and funding would be separate from pay generally.
Comments on the proposed scheme are invited by 10 October.
