star this property answer text <p>The Department for Education is asking schools, like other employers across the public sector, to contribute more towards their employees’ pensions to ensure that the cost of public sector pension schemes do not fall unfairly on taxpayers. Our protection of the core schools budget in real terms means that schools are well-placed to cope with changes in their costs in 2015-16. The Department has also deferred the introduction of the increase to September 2015, giving schools an additional five months to plan how they will meet the additional pensions cost.</p><p>In addition, the Chancellor confirmed that the next spending review will take into account the cost to employers of the reforms to the Teachers’ Pension Scheme and the implications for National Insurance.</p> more like this
