I need to report my teacher. Watch
On results’ day this summer, I opened my envelope and saw that I had received a 5. Most of my classmates who had been predicted 8/9’s all received 4’s, 5’s and if they were very lucky, a 6. Only 2 people received a 7 and that was the highest grade. My PE teacher was nowhere to be seen on results’ day, and this isn’t the first time this has happened.
The exact same thing happened to my cousin who also took the new PE exam at my school last year. She was predicted a 9 and got a 6. The PE teacher (same one I had) was again nowhere to be seen on results’ day. The teacher told my class that the reason why my cousin’s class had their marks dropped was because “the school’s sports hall was too small, so AQA said that their skills were not demonstrated enough” (what even?). But both classes did their final practical work this year at another school with a BIGGER sports hall and we still got low grades.
The teacher is refusing to speak to any ex-students who have come to the school, and told the reception staff to tell any ex-PE students looking for her that “their marks are never going to change”. The school has said that there’s nothing we can do about it. We can’t even get the exams remarked because she’s refusing to release the breakdown of our grades and she won’t give anyone the green light to submit a review request.
I need to report this teacher because she has failed everyone who has taken the new 9-1 PE exam at our school. Everyone who has taken the subject so far at my school has received lower grades than they predicted (and anyone who was told that they were going to fail, failed), and I honestly can’t believe that she is still teaching the subject when she is clearly incompetent. I don’t know what she is continuously getting wrong but this needs to end with my class. I refuse to see anyone else I know receive a poor grade because of this woman.
If anyone could offer me advice on how to report her, I would be grateful.
Not really. I called AQA and they told me that only my exams officer can do something about it. The exams officer has directed us to speak to the teacher, but the teacher in question is refusing to speak anyone.
What do you think you can add to what the school already knows?
She blamed the low grades on everyone handing in their NEA “late”, and on one person actually copying and pasting an example NEA and handing it in as their own work.
She also blamed everyone’s low grades on the people who chose dance, saying that she didn’t like the songs because some of them had swearing and the moves didn’t match the songs.
Her excuses were pathetic and I was told that when she told these to our headteacher, the headteacher actually shouted at her and made her cry in front of students.
