STRB : Remit for the 30th Report Supplementary Comments

Following consideration of the evidence of other statutory consultees, we have now submitted our supplementary evidence to the STRB.  
As part of that evidence we also included additional information that was requested by the STRB.

ASCL refutes the claim that a 3% increase in the total pay bill is affordable by schools, made by the DfE in its submission, and we have provided evidence to support this.  We also call for additional funding to be made available for any uplifts.

We do not support any of the three models proposed by the DfE. This is because they are all, in essence, the same model, albeit with small variants in the percentage uplifts.
