Hi, I was wondering if anyone could advise me about my current situation and whether my school is following statutory procedures. I’m a primary NQT, (started in Jan) and I’ve been recently failed for my first term. My named contact came in to observe me, and it was his observation and two previous ones during the term (by SLT) that have concluded that I am not meeting the teaching standards. In addition to this, I have been told by an SLT member that I might be moved out of class to become a cover teacher because of a few safeguarding mistakes I’ve made. These have happened over the course of the term and have included using a mouth thermometer on a child and not saving the afternoon register on SIMs. There have been 6 mistakes altogether, varying but of similar severity. My question is how can my contract be changed and how can I not be class based if I’m an NQT? Any ideas? Thanks. PS. I’m in the process of talking to my union but I haven’t found the time to call them recently as this term has been so busy with events and deadlines!
