The high court has ruled that the National Union of Teachers can challenge a decision to link teachers' pay with the performance of pupils, reports The Western Mail (p1).

The DfEE is keen to implement the scheme which could see a good classroom teacher earning up to£30,000 a year. But the NUT was told that the high court believed there were good grounds for a challenge.

The court also said there were grounds for looking into whether the Welsh assembly could be responsible for deciding how the threshold would be passed in Wales.

National Union of Teachers Cymru secretary Gethin Lewis said: 'We are absolutely thrilled at the news, especially as the question of whether the national assmebly should be responsible for deciding how teachers should pass the threshold has been raised.

'We have always said it should be within the assembly's remit, especially as it already has decide on the way appraisals should be carries out for all teachers.'
