Conditions of Service for School Teachers 2023 ("Burgundy Book")

Conditions of Service for Schoolteachers in England and Wales (The Burgundy Book) – 8th June 2023

The Burgundy Book is a national agreement between the five teacher unions and the national employers (NEOST).

It is relevant to around half a million teachers and is an essential reference for all schools – both maintained and academies – with the majority choosing to incorporate the agreement into their teachers’ contracts of employment.

Its main provisions relate to notice periods, sick leave and pay, and maternity leave and pay.

It has been updated in June 2023, this edition updates legislation and clarifies terminology without amending the application of any of the terms and conditions of employment contained in the Burgundy Book.
