This is becoming a real health and safety issue. As Science teachers we are legally responsible for locking labs after we have been in them. If a child gets harmed because you have not locked a lab then you can be sued. Please please ensure you lock all rooms and prep rooms when you leave them.
Students should also never be in prep rooms, not even for a removal. The procedure is if they reach a C3 they are to be sent with work and a slip to room 46, a sixth form lesson or to a pre-arranged teacher. Never just put in a prep room.
If students turn up with no slip or work they will be sent back to you.

Observations for the next term can be either for your current or new timetable. Who will be observing you will be sorted out so that TW or AMH have seen everyone between them
These are being damaged by students pushing out parts of the plastic surrounds. Please keep and eye on students when they are using them as the surrounds must be complete for health and safety reasons.
Any students in your groups that are underachieving by 2 sub levels or more can the names be passed to HC/FK for intervention purposes. The data you should use to identify these are your in class tests as well as progress tests.
Could you pass to them the name/ group/current level/target level
