In my college, in line with new no notice inspections, we get notice an observation will take place, but not when in a whole week. Is that usual? We used to be told which lesson it would be.
I think it is unnecessary stress. We are still graded on paperwork etc, even though the new Ofsted obs do not. As a one person department, I never have time to do full typed up LPs for every lesson but that it what they expect -of course I plan my lessons but in a personal short hand in my planner and within my SOW. With my students I often have to adapt lessons when i find they haven't done something in KS3 or 4. Having been off on sick leave for 3 weeks, I am totally stressing out! I have got the new visual LPs which I love - but doubt our SLT will accept them.
