What are the changes to the national pay spine?
The recent national pay agreement for the National Joint Council (NJC) for Local Government Services (generally known as the ‘Green Book’) was a two-year pay award for 2018-19 and 2019-20. The first year of the award has already been implemented (through the pay increases that were effective from April 2018).The second year of this award, which is effective from April 2019, involves a more fundamental change to the national pay spine. These changes include:
Amalgamating current pay points 6 to 17 into some of the new pay points 1 to 6
Increasing the lowest pay point to £9 per hour so that it exceeds the new statutory national living wage
What does this mean for my school (If your school proposes to follow the Green Book conditions of service)?
From September, there will be a new structure for staff which comprises 11 new grades with no overlaps. To assist with your budgeting, you can click on the calculator (attached) to see how this affects certain grades.
