REVIEW BODY CONSULTS ON TEACHERS PERFORMANCE PAY

The School Teachers' Review Body (STRB) has issued a consultative document on a performance-related pay scheme for heads and deputies in England and Wales.

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.

In the Review Body's view it is essential that a PRP scheme for heads and deputies be kept as simple as possible so that it is readily understandable and easy to administer in all 26,500 maintained schools throughout England and Wales.

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.
