Dear Theo, At the start of this school year I was made ICT co-ordinator by the new head in our infant school. Our head retired at the end of last year and before leaving asked me if I would like 'responsibility' for ICT this year, which I said yes too. When the new year started, the new head approached me and asked if I was ICT Lead, to which I replied I am responsible for ICT but not sure what exact responsibilities I have. He responded that if I was interested then I would be ICT Lead/co-ordinator and asked me draw up an action plan as our school is significantly lacking in ICT across the curriculum. Since then I have drawn up the action plan, drawn up lists of resources with prices, introduced online based assessment in our early years, will be leading staff meetings to train staff in new software and resources, will be given leadership time to go through all of Year 1 and Year 2's plans and create an ICT scheme of work for them and monitor the use of ICT throughout the school. When I asked the head about paying me my TLR he stated that many people are taking on roles "out of the goodness of their heart" and that the school could not afford to pay me for this role. Having read the NUT criteria for TLR I feel that I am entitled to even the lowest TLR as I am doing everything stated in the criteria list: is focused on teaching and learning; requires the exercise of a teacher's professional skills and judgement; requires the teacher to lead, manage and develop a subject or curriculum area; or to lead and manage pupil development across the curriculum; has an impact on the educational progress of pupils other than the teacher's assigned classes or groups of pupils; and involves leading, developing and enhancing the teaching practice of other staff. I do not know how to broach the subject again as I am also due to move up a payscale in December as I had finished my NQT year a term late. I also do not have a job description to back me up and I am not sure what I am entitled to as I did not have to apply for the position. I also manage the school website which I am not given time for and so I feel like I am doing 3 jobs for the price of one very cheap teacher! Any advice would be appreciated! Thanks!
