Help I have just had my performance management obs. I work in one of 4 Special Teaching Facilities in a primary school. I have a KS2 class and the children have a range of SEN some working at low Pscale 5 level up to NC level 2a. Out of the 4 STF classes I am the only one observed by the deputy head (the other 3 SEN classes are observed by the SENCO) the appraiser generally goes out of his way to make my life miserable but appears "sweetly nice" to me, you know the 'I'm your best friend' type. Anyway he has no SEN experience and has slated my lesson, giving me a unsatisfactory grade. Many people have observed me in the past and I always got good. I have very good staff and they thought the lesson was very good.. It was differentiated to 4 levels. The staff have been told that with the cut backs we will lose a teacher next year. I have not signed the feedback form yet. Please could anyone give me advice on what to do.
