Thanks to NORTHERN TEACHER and CLASSROOM TEACHER newslettersand Wilts & Wakefield NUT for much of the content
CUT OUT AND KEEP!
Teachers are expected tcontribute, both orally and in writing as appropriate, to curriculum development by sharing their professional expertise with colleagues and advising on effective practice.This does not mean that they can take on the responsibility of, and accountability for, a subject area or to manage other teachers with- out appropriate additional pay- ment. Responsibilities of this nature should be part of a post that is in the leadership group or linked to a post which attracts a TLR on the basis set out in para 22.” 
STP&CD 2008, Section 3: Guidance onSchool Teachers’ Pay & Conditions(General), P168, para 65
 Has any Plymouth-based teacher been successful in applying for this? Let us know...

The greater part of this letter was recently sent to all Wiltshire HTsby the ATL, NASUWT & NUT to provide them with the professionalassociation’s position on the expectations of teachers on the UpperPay Scale (UPS). We have already had many enquiries from membersabout this. Plymouth NUT fully endorses the views expressed below:
After 31 December 2008, all safeguarding for Management Allowances (MAs)comes to an end. The rules of MA safeguarding have required teachers tocontinue to undertake appropriate additional duties in return for their MApayment having been protected. This meant teachers not awarded a TLRpayment, or awarded a TLR lower in value than their MA payment could berequired to continue to carry out their additional responsibilities as long assafeguarding remained in place. The removal of safeguarding, however,means that those responsibilities should also end. (Some teachers havealready lost their MA safeguarding as their salaries increased during thesafeguarding period – when the MA was lost and subsumed into theirsubstantive salary the additional duties came to an end).Schools should now consider whether and how those responsibilities shouldcontinue to be undertaken. If the work in question still needs to be carriedout the school should either establish a new TLR payment in the staffingstructure to give that teacher an appropriate payment for that work, orconsider whether another teacher (or teachers) should take on all or part of the work in return for an appropriate payment reflecting the revised level of responsibility. Such changes should, of course, be subject to properconsultation within the school.In some schools, it has been argued that teachers can be required to under-take additional whole-school or managerial work above the professionalduties of normal teachers without appropriate TLR payments, simply becausethey are on the Upper Pay Spine or are on UPS3. This is not the case. Anyadditional responsibility should attract an appropriate level of TLR payment.The UPS was introduced by the then Secretary of State, David Blunkett MP,to encourage and reward good teachers who wished to stay in the classroomand not as an alternative to the payment of TLR points.New guidance in the 2008 School Teachers Pay and Conditions Documentadvises that responsibility and accountability for subject areas ormanagement of other teachers should be connected to TLR posts orleadership group posts. While teachers may be expected to contribute tocurriculum development by sharing their professional expertise withcolleagues and advising on effective practice, additional responsibilitiesshould attract additional payments.
