I've been off school all week with a really horrible cold, and to be honest, I don't feel well enough to be going in tomorrow. My chest hurts, and a trip to the supermarket then making dinner this evening wiped me out. However - I'm getting very paranoid that school don't believe I'm ill, and its 2 weeks until my y11s have to have their coursework in. I know they aren't where they need to be, and they only have another 2 lessons with me in that time (split class). My lesson with them is also to be observed. Had a mad few weeks with taking out a trip and a school show, and my last set of observation grades slipped a bit due to it being in a second subject I'm not trained in. I've missed an options evening tonight, so I just feel like I'm going to be a pariah when I go back in. Partially I feel I need to go in tmrw to show them that I'm really sick!!! I think they are going to say my y11s aren't making enough progress, and there isn't enough evidence of feedback - due to missing several lessons I've not been able to give any formative feedback written to my class on their coursework. Just feels like a total mess. If I don't go tmrw, I'll be going to the doctor and asking for proof that I'm ill!!!!
