I have been teaching for a few years and feel like I have been making progress. My learning walks, observations, student voices, etc. have all but one been rated as good or better. I have had no concerns raised about my ability as a teacher, my targets were met and my evidence for pay rise was checked, however at my pay review the board of governors stated that they felt that my performance management lacked enough evidence for me to progress to the next pay scale and so the decision was being deferred. I was struggling in September with positivity but managed to pick it up after half term. This new information has however just knocked me sideways and I am struggling massively with confidence in my ability and I don't know how to get my positivity back.
