My head and deputy have informed me that I won't progress to UP3 unless I have 3 'good' rated lesson observations. I become extremely nervous when observed and I'm never myself (I tend to get satisfactory 'with aspects of good'). It seems unfair that one and half hours of observations during the year can put paid to any hope of progressing up the scale. In addition to this, t's usually the same observer and someone whom I've fallen out with on many an ocassion. I feel her observations aren't always reliable and accurate but based on opinion and who she likes or dislikes. My class is great and they are achieving well. I'm on top of everything. Feeling depressed. Can they do this to me?
