So, I've landed my first job (yr 4) and I'll be replacing a long established and much loved teacher (who has a new SMT post at a different school). Has anyone any tips on how to avoid/manage "But Mrs Xxxx didn't do it like that" etc and make them my class as quickly as possible?
I'll have a few days in the class before the end of this term to see how things currently work and learn the school's routines, rewards system, etc.
<Still slightly in shock that I will finally actually be an NQT!>
Oh, remembers current job and while you are in this term take a careful look at any strategies that are in place and working for anyone with SEN or behaviour issues and plan to keep using them- consistency will help for them.
