Dear Theo, HOD role, but only 0.5FTE = what salary?!

    The prep school I work in doesn't pay heads of department additional money for being a Head of Dept, onle those those with significant additional responsibilities get additional payments, but not for doing the HOD role.
     
  2. Thanks trinity0097, thats good to know. I've always been in state, so just assumed these type of payments would be similar. Do they compensate be giving more free time within the timetable, or any other way? Seems a little unfair to me!

    In my school, HoD <u>were </u>given extra money. Quite a lot for big Depts. But there was no actual scale of allowances and of course no official TLR.
    I had assumed that you would get the half timetable money plus the full whack extra for doing the HoD role. Especially for Music, where you are managing the musical life of the school, as I said.
    Good luck!

  4. Hi Theo,
    Thanks for your advice, the interview was yesterday and seem to go well, lessons were great, interview less sure about as they didn't give much away! They are getting back to me in the next couple of days, and between now and then I need to get clear in my head what the implications of leaving my current role are financially as I'm currently on maternity leave.
    I've read some posts on here and am under the understanding that if I choose not to return to work then the OMP I have received will need to be paid back unless I return to work for 13 weeks. I need to give 4 weeks notice of any change to return to work date (currently set for 18th July), which doesn't quite give me enough time to work out these 13 weeks before starting the new role in September - can I work less and pay back less? If so, was thinking I could return to work 18th July, as intended, and give my notice for 31st August, would I be paid over the summer, and technically 'worked' 7 weeks..... so would be expected to pay back roughly half OMP???
    Could it work like this? If not, do you think there may be any milaege in asking new Head to employ me from earlier start date, and use this money to pay back OMP?
    Thanks for all advice :)

    The maternity pay issue is a tricky one.
    Some Local Authorities do say - come back half of the period and we'll only take away half of the owed pay.
    Some stick rigidly to the rule.
    You do fewer than 13 weeks, you forfeit the lot.
    Only way to find out is to ring County Hall and ask . . .
    And same goes for asking new Head. You can only ask.
    Best wishes
