Depends on how you want to play it: if you are in a position to talk professionally with your head you might be able to work something out. The fact is your school has broken the law: the 2006 regs require schools to carry out PM (not should carry out, must). If your head won't countenance considering you this year on the grounds that you are too late, ask for a copy of the school's Pay Policy and Appeals procedure.You could intimate that since you heard nothing in your annual pay review, you assume you have been refused progression and that therfore you will be lodging a pay appeal with the governors. If you win this your UPS2 money would be backdated to Sept 1st. Your head would have to establish good reason why you were not progressed - tricky in the absence of any PM evidence - and also have this failing made much of in front of the governors' pay panel. hope it doesn't come to this, obtain immediate support from your local union office..
