I am currently a senior leader and, due to sickness from anxiety, have requested and been granted I amend my role back to class teacher from September. My school have supported my request. However, I'm currently paid on the leadership scale, and the school have indicated that they would offer me M6. I was on M6 with a TLR when I joined the school in 2014 and they amended my pay to the leadership scale the following year. I've had yearly spine point increments. The school say that since I have never formerly applied to go through threshold that this is the maximum point they can offer, but that I can apply for a 2019 change. I know in the STCP it says that teachers moving from leadership to teacher scale must be on UPS but am unsure whether the 2017 changes impact this. As this is also a return to work from anxiety they have also Indicated that the leadership responsibilities I requested for a TLR (the same as my current job description and contract states as it has not been amended since 2014), would also not be offered to me. I've contacted my union but would benefit from further advice before the deadline for notice period is up!
