I completed my NQT year in July. I have not had a performance management meeting for this academic year yet. Is it at the headteacher's discretion whether or not one of their teachers moves up the pay scale after passing NQT year? If so, will I have to wait to find out until my performance management meeting? I ask because I am starting a new job in January and the new school have said they will be paying me the same as my current school. I know they have asked my headteacher what my current salary is but I am not sure whether she has told them the salary I am currently on (the same as I was as an NQT) or the one I could be moving up to. Thanks for any advice you can give.
