Hello all, I have a query regarding pay scales and salaries that I hope somebody could help clear up for me. For the academic year 20/21 I will be going into my 5th year of teaching. As of my previous pay check I was paid on spine point M3. I have recently spoken to a friend who has a year less experience as me, though we get paid the same. We thought this was strange as it should go up each year, if not told otherwise. I have never been told I was not getting a pay increase, though this seems as though it has happened at some point? Am I right to have concerns about this and is there anything I can do to move up the pay scale if this is appropriate?
