Same thing happened to Lou's school at the very start of 2007. She was in the second term of her NQT year then, and is now a lead teacher, phase leader, maths co-ordinator and literacy co-ordinator! Talk about putting all your eggs in one basket - thats the first thing she's afraid they'll pick up on.
I think a lot of schools get it in their first year, as they wouldnt want it to have bad teaching for 3 years un-noticed. Lou's school was only in its second year last time.
I know Lou will be ok... it's all the others!
They're in today and tomorrow... I'll keep you posted...
