My offer of a PGCE ( Secondary) is conditional subject to my having organised a weeks observation in a yr 6 class at local primary school in September. The uni will not make it unconditional until I have a signed piece of paper from the primary school, saying that I have arranged it etc. Anyway, I have phoned 6 local primary schools to ask if I can go do this observation, and zilch. 2 have said no it's not possible, as its too early in the start of the new year for them and they will be too busy etc, and in 4 of the cases the receptionist/person who answered the phone, passed on my details to a teacher contact and I haven't heard back at all. Is any one else having this problem?
