Audrey McKie Posted June 17, 2005 Share Posted June 17, 2005 I am afed up with the lack of transparency from members of the management team in my present school. What they is at best contradictory: on the one hand, we are told that due to the unions (and thereafterthe government too) workload has got to be reduced, and I am greatful for the little amount of cover I have done this year, but on the other hand we are thrown a vast amount a small or large tasks to do, most often administrative and always extremely obscure. And at worst it just does not make any sense... For example, all teachers at my school are being observed by SMT, however, the reason for this new measure has never been discussed with middle management or the rest of the staff. It has left the staff on the whole feeling spied upon and mostly it has a certain whiff of forthcoming Ofsted Inspection. Secondly, for the rest of the term, all staff have been asked to produce a weekly chart of self-evaluation: How many of my lessons this week have been outstanding? good? satisfactory? poor? Although, I think that in itself and for personal reasons, self-evaluationis a good idea because it enables people to move forward, I do not understand why it has been imposed by SMT without any reasons. Does your school do the same to you? Do they provide exlanations? Have you got an opinion about this issue? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
