Secondary schools return to mask wearing in England in new school term

LONDON (Reuters) - Britain on Tuesday announced below-inflation pay rises for teachers, judicial officers, military personnel and prison staff, as part of a pay review for public sector workers that comes amid soaring prices and growing industrial unrest.

Starting salaries for teachers outside London will increase 8.9%, with the rest of the main pay range for teachers increasing between 5% and 8%, education minister James Cleverly said in a written statement to parliament.
