Hi All, Just been in for the annual results meeting with “the boss”. Been in charge 2 years and had to change so much in the last 2 years. Because the results were in negative res, I really don’t know how they want me to answer about the results that have just gone. I’ve walked in and tried to justify all the things I have changed in the last 12 months to try and make this cohort pass and what we are going in the next 12 months. He doesn’t want to hear “look at the students..” he doesn’t want to hear “we tried x,y and z…it didn’t work”. He wants to hear “what went wrong..” what went wrong was that the kids did not revise and didn’t answer the questions. They didn’t do homework and when I contacted parents, parents weren’t interested. We tried collecting them from detention and they refused, we contacted heads of year and that made no impact. I have no idea how to answer the questions on the data, all I can answer is what we are doing this year to stop it happening again. I've had to change so much and all i could do is feel my head going down and down in the chair. He won't accept, its going to take time. Can anyone give me advice as to how to approach a meeting where your results are in negative residual and the only reason you can find is you had a bad cohort of kids.
