Hi Im just looking for a bit of info. Im currently ( and have been for 4 years) a leading teacher paid with a TLR and am ready to move on jobs. Im happy to stay at TLR role or move up to assistant head or Dept head (in a small school). However, I am still wanting to teach in a class. In my school the assistant heads and Dept head dont have a class and just cover PPA, which does not appeal to me. I was just wondering what happens in your school. Does your SMT teach or not?
