As subject really. We haven''t have a deputy as from January so myself as KS1 leader and the KS2 leader took on the role as Assistant Headteachers. The school does not have a deputy and we probably won't for a couple of years now, just run with us as AHTs. we have divvied out the role of DHT between us equally. Didn't mind my pay this year, although it was the £2000-odd TLR which seemed meesly on top of my M6 pay. Have now gone through threshold and from september would be U1. Having had a brief comment from the head I thought we'd be going onto the leadership scale as this is now a permanent placing, whether we get a deputy or not now. But I saw my pay change thing yesterday and it says I'm going onto U1 with TLR2b, which seems to be a little pointless. I have no ide how much a TLR2b is. The other AHT is higher up the scale than me, probably U2 or 3 I would have thought. So he is technically getting more money than me for the same job exactly. I think they worked out that for him to benefit from going on the leadership scale we'd have to be further up the leadership scale for us to be getting the same benefits, which the school maybe thought was too expensive. Basically, from what I've seen, AHTs should be on the leadeship scale. What do you all think? Thanks!
