Work to begin developing a national pay and grading structure for professional and support staff in schools in England has been welcomed by Unison.

Schools minister Jim Knight this week heralded the development of a new national negotiating body for school staff in England, which will in turn develop a national pay and grading system that will apply across all types of maintained schools in England (except academies).

The proposal is the outcome of year-long negotiations between unions, the local government employers, Foundation and Aided Schools National Association and the DfES.

Unison national education secretary Christina McAnea said:

'Pay for many school workers does not in any way reflect the job they do and is determined almost at the whim of the head teacher.'
