Only one-in-five academy trusts agrees to cut six-figure salaries

Only one-in-five high paying academy trusts have agreed to cut six-figure salaries after the Department for Education asked them to justify their executive pay, Tes can reveal.

More than 200 academy trusts had been sent letters from the department questioning the high levels of pay being awarded to senior staff.

But of the 213 trusts which were targeted by the government, just 45 have since made reductions in senior pay.

The DfE said that these 45 trusts either no longer pay one person more than £150,000 or two people more than £100,000.
