I have just about had it upto here with teachers whinging about needing "5 days notice" (or "cheat-time" as I prefer to call it) before any member of SLT is allowed to even set foot in their classroom to, god forbid, actually check if anyone is actually learning anything. I say we put all Performance Management on a no-notice basis and demand that ALL such observations are judged to the exact same standard as one with 5 days notice. That way we can rest assured that every lesson taught in every school will be exactly the same as if an OFSTED Inspector were in the room. As it should be. ANY teacher who objects to this can only be doing so due to knowing, deep down, that they are a whinging incompetent. And if any so-called "experienced staff" (The ones we have to pay the most and with the least good health) fail such scrutiny, then get them on a Competency Procedure so intrusive that by the time they go off sick we'll know what they had for breakfast 5 days earlier. The ones who top themselves will save us money on competency agreements anyway. That way we can get some nice tame NQT's in, on a more reasonable wage. They won't complain and we can squeeze a few years burnout teaching out of them before they decide that they want to have children, or some such malingering nonsense. Who's with me?
