How often? Observations.

Discussion in 'Early Years' started by kangel, Jun 9, 2011.

  1. Lesson obs once every half term by senior leader...mostly head. Once (ish) a term learning walks, pupil progress once a term.
    That's more than enough too!! :)

    Our headteacher observes all teachers once a term. We get some subject coordinators observing occasionally too. These happen quite randomly could be 3 in one term then none another term. In fact I don't think our headteacher is observing anyone this term either. So it is a bit inconsistent in my school. We usually have probably about 2 weeks notice. The headteacher may stay for as long as an hour but just so she can cover a bit of whole class carpet group time and child initiated time inside and outside.We don't have obs for performance management or pupil progress just discussions.Foundation Stage coordinator doesn't observe as we are all in a unit together really anyway.
    Hope that gives you one view.
