I am starting a new regular classroom post in Sept. I am UPS3, having been part of the first cohort many years ago. My new HT has advised that, unless I am prepared to undertake some whole school research, to report to staff on a regular basis, I’m better off on M6. If I insist on UPS3, and fail to commit my time to said research, I am vulnerable to capability further down the line. Is this normal?
