I am sorry I did not respond sooner. Your e-mail went into spam folder.
I have been looking through the Staff Employment folder, which is not up to date (2013-14)
- There is an indication that there will be a regular process of staff and self-assessment. I have forms that I have completed to this effect over past couple of years. Regular assessment is not that regular though and is not connected to performance pay or an annual pay rise.
- There is nothing other than an indication that pay rises are in keeping with maintaining standard of living. Governors review with the Head annually and try to preserve this minimum. Until now we knew nothing was different. We have been getting about half a percent for last 8 years. Many of the staff salaries are now below the state sector salaries in teaching though.
I have been with the employer for nearly 15 years and I have not had a new contract issued for many years, other than an extra page acknowledging an extra responsibility I took on 18 months ago for a negotiated additional fee.
I await your response
