This page has details about pay negotiations for support staff.

The pay negotiations for 2016-18 have finally concluded, and the following increases have been agreed for support staff in the maintained and academy sectors, where the LA or academy have not opted out of the national bargaining arrangements:

From 1 April 2016

  • On Spinal Column Point (SCP) 6, £900 (equivalent to 6.6%)
  • On SCP 7, £900 (equivalent to 6.6%)
  • On SCP 8, £900 (equivalent to 6.5%)
  • On SCP 9, £900 (equivalent to 6.4%)
  • On SCP 10, £900 (equivalent to 6.3%)
  • On SCP 11, £300 (equivalent to 2.0%)
  • On SCP 12, £300 (equivalent to 2.0%)
  • On SCP 13, £250 (equivalent to 1.6%)

  • On SCP 16, £200 (equivalent to 1.2%)
  • On SCP 17, £175 (equivalent to 1.01%)

From 1 April 2017

  • On SCP 6, £500 (equivalent to 3.4%)
  • On SCP 7, £500 (equivalent to 3.4%)
  • On SCP 8, £475 (equivalent to 3.2%)
  • On SCP 9, £400 (equivalent to 2.6%)
  • On SCP 10, £375 (equivalent to 2.5%)
  • On SCP 11, £300 (equivalent to 1.9%)
  • On SCP 12, £300 (equivalent to 1.9%)
  • On SCP 13, £300 (equivalent to 1.9%)
  • On SCP 14, £300 (equivalent to 1.8%)
  • On SCP 15, £300 (equivalent to 1.8%)
  • On SCP 16, £250 (equivalent to 1.5%)
  • On SCP 17, £225 (equivalent to 1.3%)
  • On SCPs 18 and above, 1.0%

The total increase to the national paybill resulting from this offer is 2.4% over two years (covering the period 1 April 2016 to 31 March 2018).

Approximately 0.4% of this figure is designed to meet the LGA's immediate obligations under the National Living Wage and to start the process of moving towards the expected level of the Living Wage by 2020. The LGA further say that "this final offer is at the limit of affordability for councils."

In addition, subject to agreeing terms of reference, the Employers have offered to meet a non-pay element of the unions' claim which seeks, "…a joint review of term-time working and an NJC approach to deliver fair, consistent and transparent contracts for school support staff…".
