Yesterday our SLT had a learning walk and our head spent the last 15 minutes in my year 10 RE lesson in the afternoon. It was easily the worst class in our inner city school. Even our AST's baulk at the idea of teaching them in the afternoon and especially my subject RE. After the lesson my Head slated me. She said I need to get a grip on them and the lesson was graded a 4 from the 15 min snapshot she saw. I feel hard done to. They are a difficult class, a difficult subject and a difficult time of day but she would not listen to this. Yet their GCSE exam results are still good and I was made a Head of Year last week by the school for September 2011. Mixed messages and confusion a plenty. What is going on????
