Hello All, I am starting the GTP in September and am having a few problems contacting my placement school coordinator for a visit to the school before the new academic year. I tried emailing over a week ago, and then telephoning on Monday each to no avail. I wonder what would be the best course of action now? Should I try ringing again tomorrow suggesting that I am given a mutually suitable time to contact the coordinator? I do not wish to appear fussy, but am conscious that with only two weeks left until the end of term I need to get a move on with these things. I am also aware that the end of term can be a time when everything is up in the air, what with sports days, visits, etc. It is small but important things which I need to visit to find out (along with getting a feel for the school/students): Do I get a staff planner or do I need to purchase an academic diary; What is the staff dress-code; Do I need to prepare any lessons, starters or plenaries; INSET day arrangements for the start of next term... etc etc. As I say, small things, but all of which will help in not feeling like the start of next term will be a stab in the dark! Thanks in advance for any advice.
