5 Bits of Advice About: Getting involved

  1. Go on a residential with your new school. Get to know children and staff quickly.
  2. Use NQT time to observe. Watch SMT as they are likely to have been teaching longest, will be used to observations and, theoretically, should be good teachers.
  3. Take on an after-school club, or offer to help others with theirs. Show you are proactive and enthusiastic early on.
  4. Introduce yourself to as many parents as possible, as quickly as possible. Ring them, send a letter home, show you are available to them.
  5. Always, always be nice to the secretaries, caretaker and bursar. They’ll all save your skin at some point…
