I have worked at my current school for almost 3 years, when I started as an NQT. During that time I have always taught the same year group and have been promised a move this Summer. My first two years at the school were very successful - I was graded outstanding by OfSTED, regularly graded well in reviews by the leadership team, headteacher and local authority. I was also given a Grade1 by our school improvement partner where 'teaching and learning were outstanding' and 'good practice should be shared amongst other schools'. This followed a successful degree where I was awarded a prize for achievements on teaching practice. Please don't take this as me blowing my own trumpet - I'm not - but what comes next is important! We had a change of Head in the Summer and since then my teaching has been graded as inadequate three times with 'teaching and learning' been the main concern. Had I not previously been successful, had my teaching changed or even my year group I could understand more. It seems purely that the Headteacher doesn't 'get' my teaching style. I have posted this firstly to get things off my chest, secondly to ask for some advice. I am feeling nervous going back to school after half term because of the extra pressure added to me because I am not only apparantley 'inadquetae' but I am also made to feel it by the extra demands placed upon me by him. Sorry for the long message - hope someone out there can help!
