Following the acceptance of the recommendations in the School Teachers’ Review Body's 21st report of 5 December 2012, the government has now published the draft School Teachers’ Pay and Conditions Document together with departmental advice which has been produced to assist schools in reviewing and revising their approach to teachers’ pay.
The School Teachers' Pay and Conditions Document (STPCD) 2013 will come into effect from 1 September 2013. This version is being issued now to give schools and employers advance notice of the changes to the system that will come into effect so that they can review and revise their pay policies during the summer term. The DfE will be revising the document at a later stage to reflect the outcomes of the STRB’s 22nd remit relating to the 2013 pay award. Following publication of the 22nd report, the department will lay a pay order before Parliament that will give the 2013 STPCD statutory force.
