Labour responds to real terms pay cut for majority of teachers

Kate Green MP, Labour’s Shadow Education Secretary, responding to the Government confirming a real terms pay cut for the majority of teaching staff, said:


“A real terms pay cut for the vast majority of teachers is an insult after the heroic work they have done to keep children safe and learning throughout the pandemic.


“After the work they have done in the last year teachers and school leaders deserve a government that is on their side, but instead the Conservatives are leaving them worse off and breaking a manifesto promise to raise starting salaries.”
