The STRB is one of a number of independent pay review bodies established to advise Ministers on matters in respect of specific workforces. The STRB considers matters referred to it by the Secretary of State for Education in relation to the pay, professional duties or working time of school teachers in maintained schools in England and Wales.
Further details on the STRB, its role and recent remits are available.
