Hi All Am looking for reassurance really... I trained in Key Stage 2 by completing a PGCE. I came out as outstanding with two really good placements. I took a maternity cover in september which has lasted until Easter. It is a year 1 / 2 class. I have really struggled. I dont think my style has changed since my PGCE but what was judged as outstanding / good by my placement mentors/ tutors is now being judged as satisfactory! I have never really fitted in the school, my whole style and ethos just do not fit - very evidently! My mentor (the head) said today that I will be judged to be meeting the standards in my second term but she feels that I will have a lot of work to do in my 3rd term - which will not be in this school as m contract ends in april. I suppose my question is this: Is it possible that I have gone from being really good to rubbish - or could I just be in the wrong school? Square peg in round hole syndrome... Has anyone had this experience before and when they have changed schools have things improved rapidly or have you continued to struggle? Thanks everyone I am just looking for some advice and reassurance I think that this has happened to others and they have not struggled on etc.
