So I had my appraisal last week. Everything fine. Good data etc. The bombshell was when reference was made to a book scrutiny undertaken in December (there’s been one this year) where there were apparently ‘concerns’. I wouldn’t know this because the feedback sheets were emailed out on the last day of Autumn term with a lovely message bidding me a good holiday. The sheet itself had standard strengths and improvements columns. When I looked at it, it was pretty similar to everyone else’s and the improvements were nothing alarming. I took them on board but won’t know my success as nobody’s looked at the books since and there’s been further changes to policies meaning there’s other things to work on.No further mention has not been made to this until now. Informal support has been suggested when we return. I am all for extra CPD and coaching. If this had been mentioned in January-fine. However, there’s little I can do about this now other than dwell on it, at home. When we get back, it’s going to be hard enough plugging the gaps that have developed over this period, I fear. I think that my biggest gripe is other teachers out of favouritism or fear (both?) have gotten away without marking, at all. Some have left now (on there own accord). Is it a union matter or am I overreacting? It’s been more than a week and I am still upset.
