What is your advice about? Workload

1: Use holidays to try to get ahead with planning by at least a week. This gives you a buffer if you’re ill or knackered.

2: Don’t be afraid to politely say no if what you are asked to do is too much. Ask for time.

3: Mark maths in the classroom with the kids; important for them to see own mistakes and saves valuable time.  NEVER take maths books home.

4: Don’t take on extra responsibilities to appear helpful. It will likely sink you.

5: Accept that good enough sometimes really is absolutely fine. It’s a marathon not a sprint.
