ASCL is committed to a system of national pay and conditions and will continue to appeal for a system which treats all leadership practitioners equitably.
We have appealed for a national mechanism that allows all senior leaders access to a structure which brings parity and equity to leadership remuneration, regardless of a particular qualification route into a specific leadership role.
Despite repeated appeals on behalf of members, the School Teachers’ Review Body (STRB) has been strident in its response that this category of school leader sits outside its remit. In the meantime, this guidance
encourages a more consistent and equitable approach to the process of assessing levels of responsibility, which then helps to inform decisions about remuneration for school business leaders and school business managers.
