So many things I want to know! I'm a Cover Supervisor, so not a teacher but everything is going to be so different from my old school. What are the main things that you want to know?

Where are the loos?!

Get keys sorted.
Get timetables sorted.
How to photocopy stuff.
Where is HR.
Where is your line manager.

Computer network log in and password
Email address and account password
Passwords for all the school accounts for Twinkl, Bug Club etc...
When are the staff meetings and are you expected to attend?
Ask the office if you can have a list of all SEN children, a list of all medical needs/allergies and a list of G&T children.
Where the fire assembly point is

I'm starting at a new school in September and have asked for-
Staff login details
Staff email address
Fire evaluation procedures
List of who I contact and for what reason e.g. illnesses, snow day
Allergy and illness list
List of inset days and whether I'm supposed to attend
I'm in primary so these might not apply-
Assembly times
Timetable e.g. what time school starts/finishes when lunch is, break times
Any parents who are not allowed to collect.

Behaviour policy - expectations, routines, what happens when it goes wrong, where do children get sent, who can you call to help etc

Ask the office if you can have a list of all SEN children, a list of all medical needs/allergies and a list of G&T children.

I asked for this when I went on their new pupil taster day and was told that you 'kind of just have to find out what you can from the system'. This worried me a bit ...

Where to park. Where to sit, what mugs you can use. What you have to bring in and what is provided in the staffroom. What to wear for INSET. Who the DSL is and where you can find the safeguarding policy.
