Freedom of Information Request

When did Authority maintained Prinary & Secondary schools receive model teacher pay policy and allocated grant income

Received: 21 January 2020

I am one of a team of researchers at University College London evaluating the impact of the 2013 teacher pay reforms on teacher pay, teacher careers and pupil attainment.

I am writing to you for assistance in obtaining your local authority's advice to local authority maintained schools in setting pay in the light of those reforms. This is a crucial aspect of our study because it will help improve our understanding of what is going on in each local authority and how this differs across England.

I would be very grateful if you could provide me with the following information from your local authority as the local education authority ('the Council' below):

1. In each year between 2013 and 2017 (inclusive), did the Council provide a model teacher pay policy for local authority maintained primary and secondary schools? If yes, please enclose the electronic version of these model pay policies for each year. (In case there were separate model pay policies for primary and secondary schools, please provide both for each year.)
2. The dates (month and, if possible, day) in each year between 2010 and 2017 when local authority maintained primary and secondary schools learn about their grant income (allocated by the Council among schools it maintains from block grants received from the central government) for the next school year.

It would be very helpful if you were able to provide this information in electronic form (text or table format). If you also provide any attachments we can manage any of .docx, .doc and .pdf files.

If the cost of providing this information exceeds the cost of compliance limits identified in Section 12 we would be grateful for your advice and assistance in refining the request so that the costs do not exceed the statutory limits. I understand that under Section 16 of the Act councils are used to offering such advice.

If you have any queries please don't hesitate to contact me via email or phone and I will be very happy to clarify what I am asking for and discuss the request
