Dear Theo, pay scales and applicants

    Dear Theo and all other wise gurus,
    I hope you don't mind me asking this here as well, I wasn't sure if it was one for you or John.
    I know that teachers in the state sector are not allowed to take a pay cut in order to secure a post (academies and free schools aside!) but I wondered what the situation was for leadership scale.
    I have been looking at headteacher posts in very small schools. Some pay ranges for these posts are as low as L6-L10, but commonly start not higher than L9. Does this mean if you were an experienced Deputy, already on say L12, that you could not apply for these posts as this would mean a pay cut?
    Just hoping that this may cut down the competition!
    Many thanks for your help.

    I'm afraid that I am totally ignorant on this! But I doubt it.
    Best person to ask is Tafkam on Pay & Conditions. Start a thread called Dear Tafkam - Theo says you will know the answer! He's a great lad.
