Phew! Walked in Monday morning, refreshed after the holiday, then - WHAM! Head comes in staff room at morning playtime - "We've had the phone call." They arrived on Wednesday, left on Thursday. Now we all feel wrung out. It seems wrong that people are put under so much stress that they are ill. Nobody wanted to let the school down. What did surprise me was that most teachers only had one, 20 minute, observation upon which a judgement on teaching was made. I'm not making any particular point, just letting off a bit of steam. Anyone had a similar experience?
