Council employers say pupils will be the first to feel the effects of the teachers' pay rise, and have called on the government to pay the full£276 million bill.

The government agreed to an above-inflation 3.3 % increase for teachers last Thursday. The award will be implemented in stages until December.

'Every extra pound the government awards teachers will have to come out of schools' or council tax payers' pockets,' said Local Government Association education chair Graham Lane.

Education secretary Gillian Shephard said the rise 'reflects the need to ensure the profession attracts and motivates individuals of the required quality'.
