250,000 teachers face salary cuts after pay review ignored.

Byline: EXCLUSIVE BY NICOLA BARTLETT Political Correspondent

MORE than a quarter of a million teachers face further pay cuts this year despite an independent pay review.

Education Secretary Damian Hinds rejected the review's recommendations to give all teachers a rise.

Instead he decided that those on the "upper" pay scale would receive a 2% pay rise and those on the "leadership" scale would receive just 1.5%.

These rises are less than inflation, meaning another real terms pay cut.

Angela Rayner, Labour's Shadow Education Secretary, said: "The Prime Minister promised she would end pay cuts for public servants, but it is becoming clearer by the day that this doesn't apply to our schools."

Teachers are already over PS4,000 a year worse off in real terms than they were in 2010.
