Hi, I am interested in finding out the expectation of teachers and their planning folders in other primary school settings. I have begun my third year teaching this September and have only ever taught in one primary school. Please tell me to 'suck it up' if this is the case in most schools but it feels the expectation is not maintainable. The SLT requests planning folders from all teachers to be submitted for scrutiny. As such we were issued with a set of expectations: 1. Class information Class list Pupil Premium and AfA lists to completed termly (sheet which includes mapping of all provision for these pupils including intervention, group work and after school clubs Provision Map of everything that goes on in and outside my classroom 2. Timetables & Organisation A3 Curriculum overview showing objectives of the NC being taught in all subjects for Aut, Spring and Summer Current topic web that would appear on website Weekly overview timetable - To show what happens in the classroom week to week (if anything changes it should be written on. All previous timetables to remain in the folder Weekly TA timetable - A Timetable to show every breathing moment of TA deployment in the week, including pupil initials of groups, highlighted Pupil Premium, EHCP and AFA 3. Current English Plans - Edited to match the needs of chn (obviously), TA feedback forms including names of all chn in TA group with objectives for lesson. All plans to have highlighted where and when all PP, EHCP and AfA chn are in the lesson. Feedback sheets to be filed with corresponding lesson plan. All plans must be annotated as the lesson is taught. Ensure a section has been included to show how in that lesson you are stretching the more able pupils - with initials of chn. 4. Historic English Plans 5. As section 3 but for maths. 6. Historic Maths plans 7. Medium term plans for all subjects including plans given to PPA teachers and Superstars 8. Teacher Target group assessment analysis sheets for intervention impact recording for interventions that run over a set time period. Separate 'Pre Teach' forms which are used for boosting known chn before the taught session. Any feedback sheet should have comprehensive comments of evaluation. All forms to include names of pupils or groupings highlighting the provision of ECHP AFA and PP pupils. At this point I am unaware how often I have to submit my folder for scrutiny but I can honestly say I am spending more time worrying about which form goes where, what form is used for what activity and have I included names of every child in my class so it is clear to someone else the provision of every child. I feel i am spending more time on this that planning the quality content of my lessons! Thoughts appreciated!
