I have started a previous thread about threshold. Basically after a long-ish battle I have been progressed from UPS1 to UPS2 and am having this back dated to Sept 2010. The head (arrived Sept 2010) said that at the moment I am 'not seen as meeting post threshold standards, but as previous PM system was poor, he will give me the benefit of the doubt & progress me'. He said in order to be seen to be meeting post threshold targets that I should be doing things such as updating ICT SEN policy, producing ICT SEN resources and such like. I was under the impression that being on upper pay scale did not mean you had to do extra, that it just meant you had to be being a good, consistent class teacher getting good results etc. I do hold a SEN TLR (used to be 2nd in Inclusion dept but they have changed job titles now and I am 'learning leader for SEN'), now I can understand that for my TLR I have to be doing extra (such as SEN policy, SEN recources & a whole lot more), but am I right in thinking that my performance as a teacher & my right to remain on upper pay scale should be based on meeting the post threshold standards & that it shouldnt have anything to do with my TLR? In other words, take the TLR out of the equation, assume I havent got it. Was the head out of order for suggesting I did things like SEN policy, resources etc???... Well dont if you can make sense of this, its v.difficult to express what I mean properly!
