So today I've had feedback on my recent SLT scrutiny saying my marking is a grade 4! The reasons given were not using a students name and no reference to effort. I looked over the books with my HOD and we found lots of examples of references to effort and names used. Stickers and credits with comments saying fantastic effort or similar. HOD will challenge it as he says the books are not a 4 and it may be because I am leaving at the end of the year. However, we have full observations next week I am convinced I will be graded 4. Other staff who are leaving and were also previously good is suddenly on the verge of capability. Does anyone know if I can refuse my observation as I do not feel they will be impartial? Also anyone know of this happening at other schools. I am one of 16 leaving and am doing so for family reasons as we relocate.
