Wondering if anyone had any tips for me, I've been a HOD (state) for quite a while and I'm now moving to a new (indie) school as a HOD. My plan so far is to go and get my own teaching sorted first, watch the department and learn how they do things and get to know the staff. I don't want to go in and change everything right away, the department appears to have been well cared for. I would like to stamp my own style on it eventually, and I haven't seen the SOW yet so fingers crossed they are teachable. I have a full set of my own SOW but feel I should give theirs a go first - what are other people's thoughts on this situation?
