    We are currently looking at our monitoring cycle and currently grade observations and triangulate between observation / book scrutiny / pupil feedback. However we are looking at not grading observations but really would like any help / advice as to how other schools have gone about doing this and how to make sure the system is robust.

    Personally I don't grade, I feel the feedback and identified targets do the job. If a lesson really worries me then the targets will reflect that and I will work more closely with the teacher to support their improvement.
    Interested to hear what others are doing.
