Academies: Teachers

Volume 475: debated on Monday 28 April 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families what freedoms have been granted to academies over the pay and conditions of their staff; and if he will make a statement. (201044)

It is the responsibility of the governing body of each academy to agree levels of pay and conditions of service with its employees. However, all teachers must have access to the Teachers Pension Scheme and all employees other than teachers must have access to the Local Government Pension Scheme. Any employees transferring to an academy from its predecessor school or schools have their existing pay and conditions protected under TUPE regulations.
