    I may be half joking here. It was money used to pay for jobs for the boys all over the place.

    Pupil equity funding? What societal and/or educational gaps did it bridge in your school?..

    I think you're 100% serious

    Drillies, 2 tears out of probation, in charge of "raising attainment". Part of the HT's arselicking club. Sends a raft of emails about taking weans out of class continually for "learning conversations" (when they should be in class) and then follows it up with more emails about strategies teachers could use to raise attainment for these kids.

    You couldn't make this BS up. Stick to putting out hockey cones and stacking beanbags.

    Is "tears" really a typo?!

    Yup, two/three years out of probation and our Pretendy PT of Raising Attainment (a "dance" teacher, no less) justifies her enhanced salary by sending out emails asking us to remind our classes that supported study is running.

    Learning conversation? I like to think every word I utter to a pupil is a "learning conversation", otherwise I'd have no reason to speak to the vast majority of pupils at all.

    And yes, spot on again, what right does someone who wears joggies to their work have to tell you how to do your job?

    "Education" isn't the word any more.

    We had similar round our way - someone in the Creative and Aesthetic faculty who'd only been teaching about 3 yrs. Sent out lots of emails telling us how wonderful they were. Apparently, they were sensitive to the needs of the children, so the kids felt they could 'open up' to them.

    In the end, I took to sending them passive aggressive emails thanking them for their valued input and inviting them to come round to my department and faculty to help us improve. They never managed to make it, for some strange reason.

    PS Yes, I'm an evil witch and isn't it a good job I'm no longer in the profession?
