    In case they shuffle off their mortal coil or become doolally? Think it would be hard to tell since some are like that anyway!

    The older you get, the more difficult it is to keep an eye on it, unless you use a mirror!

    I think older more experienced teachers are 'checked up on' more by SLT yes.

    Of course newer ones are. Duty of care, pass NQT blah blah...

    All teachers are monitored and observed now. Even if you dropped dead in the classroom they'd still monitor you, just not do anything to save your life. Just observe.
