I'd like some advice on what the usual thinking is on pay increments for a DHT. How often would you expect, as a deputy head, to move up to the next point. Also if you don't move to the next point, what are the reasons as head you would give for this. I've been a deputy for five years, have seen the school move from SM, to satisfactory, and then in the last two years from satisfactory to good with outstanding features. I've written every RAP and wrote 3/4 of our last SEF. I've hit ALL my PM targets and more. The Head has had this acknowledged and the rest of the SLT have progressed through UPS. All thoughts are welcome.
