Joint Negotiating Committee for Teachers in Residential Establishments  

Pay and conditions for teachers covered by the JNCTRE agreement are aligned with those for mainstream school teachers’ as set out in the School Teachers’ Pay and Conditions Documents’ (STPCD) STPCD England and STPCD Wales and Burgundy Book, other than where separate provisions have been agreed by the JNCTRE. The pay ranges for classroom and leadership teachers employed under the terms of the JNCTRE agreement, effective from 1 September 2021, are therefore those set out in the 2021 editions (England and Wales as referenced above) of the STPCDs.

The 2021 STPCD England confirmed that there will be no pay increase for 2021-22 for school teachers in England apart from those earning £24,000 or below per year (£25,194 in the Fringe, £27,419 in Outer London and £28,681 in Inner London) who will receive a pay uplift of £250. There is therefore no corresponding increase in pay scale points or residential allowances for JNCTRE teachers in England from 1 September 2021. Teachers on Instructors Scales A and B should receive a payment of £250 on the same basis as teachers in English schools covered by the STPCD. This position is a consequence of the linkage to the STPCD agreed by the JNCTRE in 2007 and does not represent acceptance by any party of the decisions taken in relation to school teachers’ pay for 2021-22.

Pay arrangements for Teachers in Residential Establishments (TREs) in Wales are set by the School Teachers’ Pay and Conditions (Wales) Document, which includes a pay increase of 1.75% to teachers in Wales in 2021-22. The pay scales for teachers in Wales are mandatory and establishments are therefore expected to revise their pay scales in light of revisions to the national framework.

The Sleeping in Duty Allowance should be increased from 1 April 2021, in line with the headline percentage pay increase agreed by the NJC for Local Government Services for 2021-2022. Establishments will be advised when a pay increase is agreed.  The values of allowances are shown in Appendix 1.
