I sympathise. My SLT used to be enlightened and I was allowed to do my own target setting so everyone had a realistic target, now targets are generated for us and I almost cried today when I saw them. They are completely unrealistic. There is no way they are going to get them unless I compromise my integrity. Several HoDs, myself, PE, Drama and Art tried to argue against this but we've been told tough. They have now linked our attitude to learning grades to targets so I can only give an A or B if they are on course to meet their target. Therefore the implication is that if they are working hard but not meeting their target it's my fault. I foresee some unhappy parents. With APS etc. we seem to have lost sight of the fact we're better at some things than others and more to the point we're not allowed to use our professional judgement to set targets which are appropriate. Also very sick of it.
