Hi all, This term I got promoted from classroom teacher to SENCo in my 120 pupil Secondary Special School for SEMH. All 120 students at my school have SEN so it is a much bigger role than in other similar-sized schools. I do not teach but every student has SEN. I am a qualified teacher, qualified SENCo and Qualified Access Arrangements Assessor. I am also the Designated Teacher for LAC. To be the 'official' SENCo you have to be both a qualified teacher and a qualified SENCo (or working towards the qualification). I am still only being paid as a classroom teacher despite now being in the 'Middle Management Team'. I get an SEN allowance but so do all classroom teachers at my school. All other teachers in the middle management team get some kind of TLR but I have been told that I can't because I don't teach. Should I be getting a TLR or be on the leadership scale? What about the Leading Practitioner Scale? Or do you think paying me the same as when I was just a teacher is correct? I should add that when I asked the question shortly after my promotion I was told that it was 'under review'. I would appreciate your thoughts about this.
