Geoff Barton, General Secretary of the Association of School and College Leaders, comments on the government’s offer on pay and conditions following talks with ASCL and other education unions.
“We have met with our executive committee of senior elected members this afternoon to discuss an offer from the government over pay and conditions which follows talks that have taken place with ASCL and other education unions during the past two weeks. We will tomorrow circulate full details to our members and ask them for their feedback over the next few days as to whether we should accept or decline the offer. This is a matter of great importance to leaders, teachers and parents and we are ensuring that our response is fully considered and representative of our members in schools across the country. We are not commenting on the detail of the offer at this point in time.”
