Hi all My first post here, I am currently working in a primary school as a PPA cover teacher and started in Sept 2015. I am actually a trained secondary MFL teacher, but am considering making a leap into primary, so am pleased to have this particular role. I am finding it interesting and very insightful, as it means I get to teach a variety of lessons, with different years and key stages, before I decide whether I want a class teacher role, and all the responsibility that comes with it. I generally get asked by teachers to teach their French which is fine, and I have been planning all SOWs and lessons, plus resources for all French classes in yrs 3-6, which again is enjoyable for me - it's my passion! My concern is that I am yet to have any kind of appraisal meeting, or discussion regarding targets, performance management review and ultimately pay. I am working extremely hard to fulfil the role well by marking work I have taught, feeding back to teachers properly faster lessons and following up behaviour issues and misconceptions met during class (unlike some others who see it as the easy option). The thing is, I don't have much evidence for it all. My marking is only every tick and initial, as our marking policy states that PPA teachers only need to initial mark work, and some teachers tend to give us lessons that don't feature work in books (they are very particular about marking and presentation of books at this school). There are other standards, e,g assessment, keeping data record etc that I don't even have the chance to show, Should I be worried about this? I of course want to progress to the next pay scale (M6) for next September, but am concerned I might not go up because I'm not fulfilling all the standards as a teacher (or at least, I don't have evidence to show/support this) What do you think?
