5 Bits of Advice About:  Emails

  1. Never send an email to every member of staff unless it really, really needs to go to every single member of staff.
  2. Check before you hit ‘send’. Did you click ‘reply to all’ by mistake? Have you given a first impression to colleagues suggesting you are illiterate? Spellcheck is good!
  3. Don’t read school emails just before bed: you could end up with a sleepless night or an hour of extra work, rather than the duvet you crave.
  4. Respond to urgent emails immediately, or risk forgetting them and incurring someone’s wrath. Cultivate the impression that you are organised and efficient.
  5. Ask an experienced colleague to check important emails (eg to parents / SLT) before you send them. Copy in your mentor so he/she has the relevant info if required later.
