Back to School
At the start of the academic year, every teacher should receive the following documents:
• Your salary statement - this should state where you are on the main salary scale, where you are on UPS, the value of any TLRs you may hold and your overall salary.
• A breakdown of your 1265 (directed time) hours. If you are working part time, you should receive a personal pro-rata breakdown.
• The school calendar - your PPA should be clearly identified (not less than 10% of your timetabled teaching time). If your PPA is in the afternoon, check that it is an accurate reflection of PPA in your school (some schools swap AM and PM PPA slots mid-way through the year).
• Your contract, if you are starting a new job (legally, you must receive this within two months of your start date).
Are you remaining as rep this academic year? If not, please ensure that a new rep is elected so that we can continue to send local information to a person in your setting. Let us know who it is! If you are the rep, please recruit new members. These could be support staff, NQTs, staff new to the school or those training on the job i.e. SCITT, Teach First. Also, please check that your membership lists are up to date where staff have moved on or joined your workplace.

Finally, thank you for all your help and support over the past twelve months. Being NEU rep is not always easy, but it is a vital part of how the union operates. The grassroots membership and reps are the life blood of the union.
