What is your advice about? Attacking the paperwork mountain

  1. You are still likely drown in paperwork once you start teaching even though we have email so you need a system of making it manageable.
  2. Don’t be afraid to use “file 13” – i.e. the bin. You don’t need to keep every piece of paper you are given.
  3. Ask yourself this question, “If I lost this bit of paper would it make me cry?” If the answer is yes, file it away safely immediately!
  4. Have an email system which makes retrieval easy. Use inbox sub-folders to sort emails by category e.g. NQT evidence, SEND pupils etc.
  5. Don’t forget to regularly de-clutter your email inbox. It’s worth it in the end! Save emails as word docs if you need to keep anything permanently.
