One of our members "somewhere in West Sussex" valiantly turned up to work with laryngitis. After teaching a modern foreign languages lesson which was observed for internal assessment, she was told this was "satisfactory."

This would be quite reasonable but OFSTED seem to have an Orwellian attitude to the English language in which "satisfactory" can become "doubleplusungood" in the wink of an eye.

The NUT advice to members: if you have laryngitis or any other illness which will prevent you working do not turn up for work. Your goodwill, it seems, will not be reciprocated.
