The Government accepted in full the School Teachers’ Review Body's (STRB) 2018 recommendation for a 3.5% uplift to the minima and maxima of the main pay range. A 2% uplift was applied to the statutory minima and maxima of the upper pay range and the leading practitioner pay range. A 1.5% uplift was applied to leadership pay ranges, including headteacher groups.

The STRB is currently considering the pay remit in respect of the 2019 teachers' pay award. The Government will consider the STRB recommendations once they have been received.
