I know this has been discussed many times before but, as usual with this site, I cannot find it anywhere. I don't understand the NUTs recommendations re the maximum number of observations. They say: · Therefore classroom observation for the purposes of performance management and evaluating the standards of teaching and learning should not exceed a total of three hours within each performance management cycle. and then say: · Classroom observation for the purposes of performance management should be limited to one observation of a maximum of 60 minutes in length per performance management cycle, subject to the reviewee choosing to request a further observation within the three-hour maximum. So, does this mean that a head should (according to the NUT) observe you only once per year unless you request otherwise?
