Just looking for some advice as to where I stand with a pay change at my school due to a staffing restructure. Last January I took over the position of KS3 Maths Co-ordinator on a temporary basis, I was an internal candidate, the post had been advertised on the TES website with a 2b TLR and the possibility of a £2000 RR for a suitable candidate. I was given the post on a temporary basis due to being the only applicant they took through to interview. I was given the TLR 2b. I knew the school was restructuring as I had been present at the meetings with the Head Teacher when restructuring was discussed. The head teacher said that he had spoken personally to every member of staff that the restructure would affect. On the last day of term when I came home from school I had received a letter stating that my position was now being made permanent, but would now only be being paid a TLR 2a. During the restructuring period I had never been told that my position would be downgraded. If I had been made aware of this I would have applied for other positions within school that are for the same TLR but in my opinion require a lot less additional work. (KS5 co-ordinator and numeracy across the curriculum were internally advertised in the summer term) I know that my contract was originally temporary so I am probably exempt from the TLR safeguarding, but I was wondering if I have to accept the position being made permanent? I would rather go back to being a "normal" main scale teacher than co-ordinating all of KS3 Maths for an extra £2613. So really I was asking a) Can my pay be downgraded without informing me b) Can I refuse to accept the changes and give up, with immediate effect, the TLR position The fact that the letter was dated the 9th July but I only received it on the 16th July felt like the school were not giving me any chance to ask questions about the changes.
