hi all - first post and have seen a job but it is a 2C - approx how much please?? thanks
TLR 2 covers £2,478 to £6,057.
2c is likely to be close to the bottom of that range.
thanks - I am currently on approx £5500 - so this will be too low. would they think it cheeky of me if I asked them for the exact amount? mmmm
The school will already have set amounts in the range I mentioned above that they call 2a, 2b and 2c. You can ask for a TLR 2a or 2b instead of a 2c but the Governors will have to agree to change the staffing structure of the school to create this new post. Best of luck with that.
DMTLR 2 covers £2,478 to £6,057.2c is likely to be close to the bottom of that range.
Unless you're at my school, in which case 2c would be at the top of that range!
thanks both - will probably ring them

That's interesting. I noticed a school using National Curriculum sublevels a b c the opposite way from what I was used to recently too!
A little research has revealed that more schools are using 2C for the top end of the scale than the bottom (approximately 3 times as many). I think you should check it out.
DM National Curriculum sub levels are nationally set c, b, a in ascending order. They cannot be used any other way and make sense.
My 2c is worth in excess of 6 a year - not enough for what I do, but that's another story.....

Nope. That simply isn't true. There are no such national criteria. We do use Low, Secure and High in APP but no letters.
'Fraid there are.
Otherwise, how else would dcsf grade level 3 at KS1 as 3b when claculating valued added data?
Following KS2 SATs/ NCTs tables are published to show the range of marks required to achieve each sub level.

They're not - they're allocated 21 points, which is the middle of the Level 3 banding. That is what many schools also refer to as 3b

No they're not - only whole level threshold tables are published.
However, in the optional tests, sub-levels bands often are published, so they do exist in a semi-official context, I suppose.
I am on 2C also and it is top end of TLR range in my school also. £6K plus.
Good luck with the job
Tafkam, each year these tables are published so that schools can sub level the KS2 scores. I am a primary school headteacher so, in this case, I do know what I am talking about. I do not mean, by publishing, that they are made public in the same way as the SATs levels for league tables etc.
I can assure you that QCDA no nothing of these mysterious secret thresholds.
