I am about halfway through my GTP and feeling dispondent. I am fed up of getting Satisfactory with many elements of good and can never understand why they can't give me an overall Good. There's a general lack of clarity as to what constitutes the difference - I have one mentor who is all about resources and another ICT and the other about flexibilty etc. It's a case of they say jump, I say how high and no matter how much I try, I can never quite jump high enough. I put so much work into things and try so hard to please them and 'play the game' so to speak but to no avail. What actually constitutes a good lesson?! I have an excellent relationship with staff and pupils, no behaviour issues, lesson content generally sound (although I have some weakness in planning), subject knowledge fine - it all just seems to come down to creating a good show really and in some instances they have mentioned proving progression. It is hard as I work in a school which Ofsted has recently said that the teaching is Satisfactory so seeing Outstanding teaching is rare. I really need that input as I really do want to get that higher grade. Any Outstanding Teachers out there who can advise me would be much appreciated!
