Teaching staff at an South Yorkshire education trust are to receive a two per cent pay rise – despite the Government capping pay increases to one per cent. Astrea Academy Trust, which runs 18 schools in South Yorkshire, has written to all teaching and academy leadership staff informing them of the pay rise.
The move comes as the Government announced that teachers will receive a one per cent pay rise this September. Education secretary Justine Greening has outlined a deal that she said ‘is consistent with the government’s public sector one per cent pay policy’.
