Hello, My story is quite a long one but I will keep it brief! I would just love some advice from people as to how I can handle my current situation. The Primary school I teach at is currently under a self imposed monitoring and evaluation schedule, that is very similar to HMI. We are due OFTSED and are worried about results and becoming a costing school so there is a lot of " drop ins", book scrutiny sessions etc going on. I have had a recent bad experience with lessons observations, I was observed by SLT after being off ill for two days. My class were very unsettled, especially as different TAs came in to cover my class, no supply cover was brought it. The lesson was a disaster and I asked during feedback to be observed again. I was observed again by the same SLT member, however the Head then came in during the observation doing a "drop in". They both fed back to me saying I was in RI, though some of their points seemed very petty. I hadn't used the exact wording on the behaviour strategy, although the child understood my request and made changes to their behaviour and the behaviour in the class was good. I was then told I had to be observed again, if improvements weren't made I would be put on a support programme. Which I took to mean informal capability procedures. I was made to feel awful and cried openly in the meeting. I was also informed that I couldn't do the CPD I had requested as I didn't seem to understand what outstanding teaching was and observing and mentoring was part of the course. So how could I do those things if I didn't know myself? Although I am currently a NQT mentor. I was observed again, they stayed for 15 minutes max and when I eventually received feedback I was given good with elements of outstanding. Which is what I am usually assessed as, my marking, books and results reflect this too. I was also observed by our Maths subject lead that week too and he gave me a great feedback assessment. So all seemed to be getting better. Until I was invited to chat about next year's staffing roles. I have been "offered" part time in one of my chosen year groups with PPA cover. I will be job sharing with either the Head or the SLT member who observed me the first two times. It has been sold to me as a chance to develop my subject specialism across the school as a school development project and this will be good for leadership development as I can show I can teach across the year groups. But I already have experience of teaching nearly every year group across the primary age range and developing whole school projects. I have just finished one! I feel they think I can't cope and want to keep and eye on me, plus keep me out of the classroom full time. But where has this evidence come from? I know I had a rough patch but the other observations and monitoring do not back it up. Should they not have told me I was failing before now if that was the case? I am observed or monitored every week and this has been happening since September! Can I refuse to accept this move? Any advice would be very much appreciated as I am feeling very upset and stressed at the moment.
