I've just read through the thread on planning and there seems to be a vast difference in what is expected from people! I was just wondering what youre school asked for (and also if they were in special measures or classed as an 'Outstanding' school!?) My school is 'Outstanding' (well, it was last year) and we are required to do a Year Plan (one side of A4), medium term plans for English/Maths (A4 each) and a topic web. Each week, we do an A4 side for Maths and one for English which detail objectives, OMS, Main activity, differentiated activities (per 4/5 groups), plenary and any extra SEN/EAL groups. The foundation is one one further page which has an objective/starter/activity and plenary for each foundation subject. Lesson plans aren't expected unless you are being observed and plans aren't submitted until the Monday AFTER the week the plans are for, once you have done evaluation comments. This takes ages, but could be worse, I suppose. Is anyone expected to do lesson plans for each lesson?
