(i)       to agree points 1 and 2 of the motion;

(ii)       to note that CoSLA, and the Scottish Government, continue to work with Trade Unions for the pay element of the current offer to be paid as soon as possible in lieu of a finalised settlement;

(iii)      to note that, as instructed by Full Council on 11 January 2023, a letter has been sent to both the Prime Minister and the Chancellor of the Exchequer asking them to provide all devolved nations with increased, sustainable and recurring funding;

(iv)      to agree that the Council has no additional funding for pay, and therefore any enhanced pay offer to the Scottish Negotiating Committee for Teachers and workforce must be fully funded by the Scottish Government and include sufficient funding to maintain parity for other bargaining groups; and

(v)      to instruct the Chief Executive to write to the Cabinet Secretary for Education and Skills noting the Council’s concerns for the education of our children and young people, if all parties cannot reach a settlement in this dispute and to urgently produce a fair deal for teachers.
