  1. Does a primary school have to have a deputy head or assistant head? Can a senior teacher be paid more than a person on leadership pay spine? How do you start the process of restructuring? Thank you!

  2. No teacher should be paid more than the
    school's AHT or DHT. Restructuring is a huge area. Speak to your LA's HR
    department. Always go by the book to avoid opening yourself or your Governors to

  3. Your LA should have policies to follow. Learn from my bitter experience and get every decision that your governors make clearly minuted. Watch your back and be prepared for it to get nasty. Get your union in to support you if it does.
