Speaking following a meeting today with Gillian Keegan, Secretary of State for Education, on teachers’ pay, Dr Patrick Roach, General Secretary of the NASUWT, said:

“While there was a positive and constructive tone to the discussions and engagement from the Minister today, we are still some way from hearing what specific proposals the Government is willing to put on the table for us to consider and consult on with our members.

“Given developments in Wales and Scotland in the last week the Education Secretary has some catching up to do. Whilst other administrations are trying to find a way forward, the same commitment to find a settlement is now needed from ministers in Westminster.

“We have been clear that all possible options should be on the table to be explored fully and we remain committed to securing a negotiated settlement to this dispute.”
