TLR – Special Educational Needs Allowance


  •   SEN allowances may be held at the same time as TLRs, however
      when reviewing staffing structures the allowances should be kept
      under review


  •   The following should be considered
       – In the light of remodelling ensure that the administrative tasks
         have been transferred to support staff
       – If the teacher has responsibilities that meet the principles for a
         TLR payment it would be more appropriate to award a TLR
         instead of the lower-value discretionary SEN allowance
       – Ensure that the responsibilities are clearly specified in individuals
         job description, and clear in the school‟s published pay policy

Opportunities and Challenges

 •   Schools of the future including:-
      – Foundation Phase
      – 14 – 19 Learning Pathways
      – Skills agenda
      – Assessment
      – Community and Enhanced Schools
