Back to school

I went to my school for the first time today. So far I love it. The staff are much more committed and professional than I’ve seen in any other school. The sense of purpose and positivity is palpable.

So, now I have my timetable, reams of paperwork and 72 hours to eke the most out of this chance to get to know the school before September.

The age old bugbear of behaviour was a talking point amongst us Teach Firsters in the school (there are 6 of us). I personally witnessed good behaviour, but heard a couple of horror stories from other departments in the school, with pupils being rude to teachers and en masse refusal to engage in learning. I am suspending judgement for now…
