The Burgundy Book


The Burgundy Book 2023 (National Conditions of Service for Teachers in England and Wales) is incorporated into the contracts of employment of all teachers in community, foundation, voluntary controlled and voluntary aided schools, and in the vast majority of academies. The key benefits cover appointment, resignation, retirement, occupational sick pay, occupational maternity rights and collective dispute procedures. 

The Burgundy Book should be read in conjunction with your employment contract, the School Teachers’ Pay and Conditions Document/School Teachers’ Pay and Conditions (Wales) Document and locally negotiated workplace policies and procedures.
