DBS and Children's Barred List services back to normal

Network difficulties which affected the DBS and Children's Barred List services at the end of last week have now been resolved and these services are now back to being fully operational.
DBS and Children's Barred List services currently unavailable

There are currently network difficulties with both the DBS and children's barred list service. Both services will be unavailable until further notice.

A further update will be provided as soon as we have more information.


Surrey County Council has provided an update on the annual pay review for both non-schools based staff and schools-based staff on Surrey Pay. Within this update it is confirmed that the joint pay claim received from Unison and GMB for school staff on Surrey Pay is: 
  • A £1 per hour increase on all pay points
  • Employees' status and career prospects protected and enshrined in any new job family
  • A commitment to achieving a minimum hourly wage in Surrey schools of £10ph
  • No deterioration in current terms and conditions
  • A commitment to discuss with the trade unions the outcome of the review of term time working called for by the NJC trade union side.

SCC and the trade unions are currently in talks about the pay settlement. A small working group drawn from the phase councils will be contributing to these discussions on behalf of schools.   

School teachers' pay: delay to publication of STRB report

The School Teachers' Review Body (STRB) was due to report back to the Secretary of State by early April on their most recent remit for school teachers' pay, which was solely to look at the pay award for September 2017 within an average limit of 1%.

We previously expected the DfE to publish the outcome in June prior to a brief consultation covering the outcome and the draft STPCD for 2017.

Further to the announcement of the General Election we now understand that publication is likely to be delayed until the end of June at the earliest and, of course, the outcome of the election may have an impact on this as well.

Further updates will be provided when any more is known.
