School Teachers Pay and Conditions Document (STPCD) 2023 


The Government has accepted the STRB’s recommendations for 2023/24 teacher pay awards in full. The publication of the STRB’s 33rd Report was aligned to the publication of a joint statement made by the Government and the education unions NEU, NASUWT, NAHT and ASCL.

The headlines are a:

  • 6.5 per cent uplift to all pay points and allowances for both teachers and leaders, apart from;
  • higher uplift for M1 of 7.1 per cent for England and 6.8 per cent for the Fringe.


The DfE has now published a webpage (Additional support for schools in financial difficulty in 2023 to 2024 - GOV.UK ( that gives an overview of what has been announced so far on the £40m additional funding. DfE will keep this webpage updated once more details are announced.
