Hi all, A member of my department recently came to me and was really upset as she had discovered that the head of maths had been given a huge pay rise despite the fact that my principal had just told her that he could only afford to give her a small bump (she is being very underpaid) It turns out (and has been confirmed) that the head of maths is being paid £60,000 a year now after asking for more money. I am the head of English and I am making £43,000. I was told that this would be put up to £50,000 with my next performance review. Am I wrong to think that this is totally unfair? We have been teaching for a very similar amount of time, my deprtment's results were much higher than maths and I do ten times more whole-school stuff than him. My principal has said that maths teachers are like gold dust and so he has to deal with 'market forces' but surely a £10,000 difference is ridiculous? Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks.
