The below Parliamentary question was asked by Grahame Morris on 2015-11-10.

Nick Gibb

The government believes that decisions on the use, deployment, and pay of teaching assistants are best made in a way that reflects local needs.

Support staff rates of pay are determined by employers: in maintained schools, these will be set by the local authority; in Academies and Free Schools, these will be set by school or the Trust.
