    I’ve remained astonished that both Ofsted and school leaders have set so much store by lesson observations. For schools to develop the open supportive culture that promotes successful learning cultures, permitting other teachers see you teach is important. Sharing good practice, talking about teaching, understanding how to nuance trategies that keep ‘Smithy’ on board without alienating ‘Jonesy’ are activities we all need to appreciate and engage. Chaotic teaching, unsafe teaching etc. are behaviours of employees who don’t have the skills and expertise yet; those lesson observations need to be reversed so the still-trainee sees and acquires greater understanding. Since the publication of Hidden lives of learners, noone can say we dont know evaluative lesson obs are vastly overrated.

    I’kd like copy of the paper please. We are currently discussing with leadership and colleagues “the craft of teaching”. As you have pointed out this something that can not be measured in such a short observation.
