Since the start of this term, colleagues and I have been on stand by for a lesson observation in a core subject. An obsession with who is coming in through the door is developing amongst staff. When pinned down, iur would be observer said er well umm some will occur this week and some next week. An impending observation can cause anxiety in itself. To be under the scrutiny of another professional is somewhat uncomfortable to say the least. Moreover, just not knowing when the lesson on will take place. What does everyone think of this?
