What strategies do you use to manage workload and protect your well being?
Our School promotes cooperation and supportive relationships within both year group and Keystage teams. I don’t know where I’d be without my colleagues. We share planning, discuss judgments, and have a laugh. I try to work hard in the week so I can play hard at the weekend with my family. I go running and attend the staff bootcamp at school on Wednesday after school.
What advice would you give anyone who felt like giving up?
Listen to feedback/advice from SLT. Find a friend at school who you can be totally honest with and support one another. Help each other to identify and choose a couple of key targets within the area that feels tough (time management, work-life balance, behaviour strategies, etc)- and work on those a few at a time. Be honest and accountable.
