The information requested is not available centrally, however based on a sample of local authorities we estimate that between 2 and 4 per cent. of teachers may be affected. Management allowances (MA) ceased to exist on 31 December 2005. Under the terms of the School Teachers' Pay and Conditions Document (STPCD) a teacher who was in receipt of a MA on 31 December 2005 was entitled to salary safeguarding for a maximum of three years until 31 December 2008, in which to adjust to the reduction in their income.
Teaching and Learning Responsibility payments (TLR) were introduced from 1 January 2006 and are now well embedded in the system and are being used to properly reward those who are undertaking a significant responsibility beyond those required of all classroom teachers.
