Hiya, I need a little information and advice. Last year, I was appointed Numeracy Co-ordinator after the previous co-ordinator left to take up a post in another school. I was awarded a temporary TLR for my efforts. That has been renewed for this year, but again it is temporary. I'm not covering for sickness or maternity leave and have been given no reason as to why it is temporary, only the suggestion that it is down to budget. My last performance management went well, and my HT suggested another leadership course, as other younger colleagues might be doing the other leadership course that I've already done. She mentioned that, as I only had a temporary TLR, I need to make sure I am more qualified than other staff. Now this might be fair enough, but it got me to wondering exactly why I was on a temporary TLR. I'm doing the same amount of work as other TLR staff and attending the same meetings. I'm doing two courses outside of school, for the benefit of the school as well as me, but in my own time (and these are part of my PM targets too). I've recently heard that a temporary TLR should only be awarded if you are covering for someone else. Is this correct? I don't want to kick up a fuss in school, that's not the type of person I am, but I want to be treated fairly. Any advice will be greatly appreciated.
