Has anyone else been demoted without any previous criticism of either classroom or leadership practice? I.E. out of the blue. Despite being allowed by law to retain the TLR for 3 years the obvious message is we don't want you, you are now a classroom teacher only ( despite being paid top of UPS plus the TLR), so the clear message from the top is go or we will manage you out. I am referring to a northern MAT whose main priority is to employ as many teach firsts and NQT's as possible so as to cut their cloth so the jam stays firmly at the top. It's a scandal yet to be addressed by serious journalists and commentators.
