I currently work on M6 with a TLR2. I teach year 6 in an additional teacher role and lead English across a federation of three schools. I also have experience leading trainer teachers in the school and shadow the SENCO. I recently went for a SLT out of office SENCO role and was successful. Before getting my contract, I was told my headteacher had to sign off my progression onto the UPS in my new school. My performance has always been Good to Outstanding and I can prove many successes as English Lead. However, my head teacher declined it and now my new school is saying they can only match my M6 and TLR2 salary. Can my current head really stop my pay progression in another school? And provide me with no feedback or reason why?
