THERE are a number of factual inaccuracies in your article "U-turn on pay" (TES, August 18).

Cambridge Education Associates has not agreed to set up an appeals procedure. It is not within the company's power to do this, nor is it within our remit to negotiate with the unions.

However under an existing complaints procedure, schools can complain about the conduct of an assessor - this is unaltered and has existed from the outset. There has been no "u-turn" or "rethink".
