Hi everyone, I started my NQT on M2 due to previous experience. This was something that was offered to me, without haggling for it. My question is, does my NQT year count as a performance review and therefore if deemed all successful all the way through, should mean that I go up to M3 automatically, or will I need to wait until my 2018-19 PR to progress on the pay scale? Many Thanks, Miss W P.S. Is M3 something that I could haggle for as I am the only art teacher in the school and as it is a newer school, it had no art department, which I had to establish and stock and manage myself?
