Understand how the teachers' pay grant is funded. Find out who is eligible, how your school's allocation will be calculated, and how you can spend the grant.

What is it?

The teachers' pay grant covers part of the cost of the 2018 and 2019 pay awards for teachers.

Most schools receive the grant through the national funding formula (NFF) in 2022 to 2023

For the 2022 to 2023 financial year, you'll continue to receive funding for the 2018 and 2019 teachers' pay awards through the schools and high needs national funding formula (NFF), instead of receiving separate grants. See our summary of the NFF.

The funding you'll receive through the NFF will be as close as possible to the amount you would have received through separate grants. The funding allocations will continue to be based on the per pupil rates, that have stayed the same since September 2019.
