Better Deal for England’s Teachers

The NASUWT is currently campaigning for our members employed in England to be awarded a 12% pay increase for the 2022/23 academic year.

Teachers are facing multiple attacks on their pay, their workload and their wellbeing.

Unsustainable rises in working hours, pay freezes in England and inadequate pay offers in Northern Ireland and Scotland, and massive adverse impacts on teachers’ mental health are creating anger in the profession after teachers have been ‘right in the eye of the storm’ for two years.

Our children’s potential to contribute positively to the future of our society and our economy is directly linked to the hard work, dedication and professionalism of our teachers. Every child from every background can develop a passion for education and deserves to realise their goals and ambitions.

But teachers are angry and demoralised.

The NASUWT is demanding intervention from the Government to secure a better deal for teachers as part of a range of measures needed to ensure the continued support of the profession.

You can help to deliver real progress towards reinstating fair pay, a reasonable workload and peace of mind for teachers.

If your school has different salary scales to these, you should email the Member Support Advice Team for specific advice, sending your school or academy trust’s pay policy where possible.

Performance Management 

The overwhelming majority of teachers now have their performance reviewed on an annual basis.

The NASUWT has produced a range of guidance to assist you in taking control of your performance management so that you are able to secure a successful outcome, enhance your career progression and maximise your opportunity for pay progression.

You should not participate in any appraisal/performance management process which does not conform to all elements of the NASUWT appraisal/performance management checklist and the classroom observation protocol.
