What is your advice about? Leaving the School Building
1: Decide when you are going to leave. Leave at that time give or take 10 minutes – whenever you get to a natural finishing point in the job you’re doing.
2: Think carefully about what you need to take home. Only take work that you know you have time to complete; it’s demoralising biting off more than you can chew.
3: See to any pressing business before you go. Try to avoid leaving niggling jobs until tomorrow – tomorrow will have its own set of little tasks to see to.
4: Don’t deliberately announce your departure to others, particularly the SLT. Say goodbye to the people you work closely to and leave.
5: Don’t feel the need to give an excuse for your departure. If you’re outside of directed hours then you’re free to go – you have a life to live!
