Hi all, I got promoted from classroom teacher to SENCo in my 120 pupil Secondary Special School for SEMH. 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. I am still only being paid as a classroom teacher despite 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?
