Hi! I wonder if anyone can help me with this? I'm currently an NQT at an academy. When I got the job I was offered a salary which is about £1,100 above the M1 pay point (they have their own pay scales). Obviously I accepted but I now realise that I don't know why I was appointed at the higher rate. Now the academy is bringing in new scales which are going to be more in line with the state sector pay scale and so what I am wondering is if I was entered onto the scale at point 2 (on their scale) rather than point 1, will this be continued when they bring in the new scale (i.e. will i be on M3) or will I be put onto M2 (as it will be my second year teaching). This will be about £500 increase in my wages rather than the £1500 (roughly) increase I was expecting by going up the current scale, I know I sound greedy but I had already budgeted for next year (in the process of buying a house) so it will be a rather huge disappointment if they decide to put me onto M2. Thank you for your responses!
