Reflections on AP2
It was decided by me and my mentor that I have now met every standard, so I got all of those ticked off on my AP2 form. So that's a good start.
Strengths from section one:
-Good relationships with young people (my pupils mostly seem to like me)
-Very positive communication skills (although I'm very shy about talking to other members of staff still. However, I have improved massively since starting at my PP2 school).
-PPD is a definite strength (I am good at evaluating, improving, reflecting, coming up with new ideas)
Strengths from section two:
-Good subject knowledge (natch)
-Good assessment records (I do the whole APP thing)
-Good teaching and learning (but not outstanding, yet)
Strengths from section three:
-Good planning (when I get round to it)
-Establishes a good learning environment (a huge improvement from PP1)
Grades: 2, 2, 2, 2 (2). Target grade: 1.
I really really really want my final grade to be a 1, so I've drawn up an action plan for hitting all those criteria. Now I need to get my head down and try my best.
