School staff windfall.

More than 1,500 classroom support staff in County Durham are to benefit from a pounds 500,000 package to increase their wages.

Durham County Council's cabinet has voted to give the staff the increase in recognition of the extra responsibilities many non-teaching staff have taken on over the last three years.

This came about as a result of a campaign to stop teachers' time being taken up with non-teaching tasks, called Allow Teachers to Teach.

But redressing the balance for teachers had a knock-on effect on other staff who found they were taking on extra responsibilities.
