I've been teaching a few years and have gone from a maintained school, to an academy and have now been back in a maintained school for 9 months. Have not had any problems with my pay progression up the main scale before but have now been told that I haven't got my expected progression since September because I have not had continuos service in a maintained school. I have been teaching continuously the whole time and had no problems with my progression when i went from maintained to academy. Bit non-plussed and fed up. My appraisal was all good and I work my butt off and get good observations, surely i should be entitled to my increment on the pay scale?!
