Update

We’ve re-published the teachers’ pay grant allocations for the period September 2018 to March 2019.

In the original allocations tables, published in October, a double-counting issue affected pupil numbers in reception classes. This meant that pupil numbers for some schools were too high, and the calculated per-pupil rate for primary and nursery pupils was too low. We have now rectified the error.

The revised tables show the allocations for all schools, with amended pupil numbers, rates and calculations for those affected by the correction. All schools will receive at least the amounts shown in the original publication in October. Where the recalculation has resulted in a higher allocation, schools will receive an additional payment. We have indicated in the tables how much these schools will receive.

We’ll make the additional payment to affected academies and local authorities (to pass on to maintained schools) in December.

On 14th September, we published the rates and high level methodology for the teachers’ pay grant for 2018 to 2019 and 2019 to 2020.

The ‘Teachers’ pay grant September 2018 to March 2019 allocations’ document shows the allocations for the period September 2018 to March 2019. The publication of these allocations was announced to Parliament in a written ministerial statement.

Further allocations covering the next financial year will be published in due course.
