Detail of outcome
Summary of responses we received, along with the government’s response outlining the next steps.
We want to identify a suitable end date for eligible teachers to submit outstanding Golden Hello claims to academies or LEAs in England.
The main points we considered were that:
- there has been a 99% reduction in Golden Hello payments over the last 4 financial years
- historical claims suggest the vast majority of eligible teachers have already successfully claimed
- those still eligible would have reasonable opportunity to submit their claim before the proposed end date
This does not impact the Teaching Grant scheme in Wales.
