  • Thank you, an opportunity to shift culture and start change.

Transformational Lesson Observation

  • I am excited about the possibility of change.
  • Observations could be such a positive driving force – at present they are not.
  • I like to sing, but I now want to write the song!
  • Best CPD I have engaged in re observation training.
  • Inspirational system.
  • Focus on questions after an observation rather than providing feedback.
  • We need a new system that eliminates fear and fosters creativity.
  • Inspired.
  • Change how I feedback – focus more on coaching model practised in the session.
  • I shall use all the information, ideas and concepts, building them into my work as an observer in order to support colleagues in actively improving impact and learning.
  • It is regrettable that the ‘architects’ of the system were not present.
  • Inspirational. Left me with a desire to make a positive change within the organisation.
  • Changing culture is challenging.
  • Eye-opening.
  • Lesson observation is to improve teaching and learning and not mirror Ofsted.
  • The observation system needs a complete rethink following these guidelines.
  • Why aren’t we doing this already!!
