    Yep, this atmosphere didn't sound too healthy...because of fear...SLT people can make mistakes and no more 'clever' than us, humble teachers...lol

    Remember the shock when the top English guy at OFSTED wrote the report slamming five part lessons and saying they rarely saw sustained reading or writing? Bit puzzling for many dim ex PE SLT types and their thicko INSET days on how to make every lesson frenetic. That’s right 25+ manic five part lessons and no one on INSET from a charlatan consultant apart from myself to say at the time that any adult would rebel against that after one day and OFSTED,to be fair, didn’t want that. Embarrassed silence all round but carry on regardless.

    You’ve been
    brainwashed into accepting that the whole thing is dangerous but you might be right and I dare the DFE to put that in their recruitment.

    At a school that I once worked at, one of the creeps found out that the Head and their wife shopped at a certain branch of Tesco's every Saturday morning. From then on he always "accidentally" bumped into him every Saturday morning.

    Ah, lovely. Ironic really; displaying limited imagination over what is classy. Oh dear. Brown-nosing over the brown sauce at Tesco’s. Pastoral care in the pasta aisle. Discussing value-added by fhe Tesco added-value poverty section. This is English education today, chaps.

    Ahhh 'The Academy School'; A Blairite profusion of many a connotations added to the ever complexity of the British educational system .... interesting to read this architectural and hint of ethos thread about such schools ... but I have parsnips that need buttering with fine words...

    This place wouldn't be in north-east essex on the coast would it?
