WellÖ P6 has a very wide range. If I'm not wrong, it includes a P6(H) - superscale (VP) level.

There are a fair number of school leaders who've never had a HQ posting - so clearly, CEP can be raised beyond P6 without a HQ posting. Just that the number of people privy to such details will be really small (school leaders only?); don't know if any of them would be commenting on this forum

Yes there are, but itís not the norm, so the rest may not be able to make that assessment. More importantly, itís quite unlikely that a teacherís CEP can be raised from P to Cluster Supt on the basis on performance in school.

Yup. There are Superscale H Principals, and there are also Superscale E/F Principals. School leadership spans a wide range of experience levels and capabilities, and certainly some of them have even more experience than their own cluster supts and back to the topic, yes while they cannot directly change a teacher's CEP to a super high level, they have access to levers that could make it possible as long as they can convince senior management to approve.

The school panel has limited powers, however, it doesn't mean that the Principal cannot access other mechanisms (beyond the school) to recommend adjustments of CEP for the most deserving officers.

As you have rightly pointed out, you could still be posting out of HQ as an SH because SLs don't really value policy wing experience. However, with a higher CEP, it is more likely that you'll progress faster thereafter.

Short term pain, long term gain. Your choice.

You're probably right, and that's exactly why many more people are leaving. Increments are too insignificant. Those staying behind seem to be either KPs or dinosaur GEO5s.

Even know of an SEO2 HOD who resigned immediately upon landing a job elsewhere.

Is that assumption groundless if I continue to keep myself abreast of the latest developments in schools
