Slightly upset and opening a beer about now... Was booked in today to do a primary cover for today/tomorrow/Fri. Arrived to find a pile of mixed up sections from mid-term plans, after tour of school had to go straight into a morning duty so no real time to familiarise myself with/decode the plans. Hence had no real idea what I was supposed to be doing during first lesson (numeracy), panicked a bit but tried to work out and follow the plan. Seemed to turn out ok, class a bit lively but not too bad. Had break duty straight after but managed to find my feet a bit more and the rest of the day went quite well. Or so I thought. Got a text off agency cancelling tomorrow and Fri, saying the school had rang and wanted someone else because my behaviour management wasn't good enough. I assume this was based on first lesson as I say, the rest of the day was fine, the class were very well behaved and got on well with the work. I'm an NQT so I appreciate I have work to do in terms of behaviour management but I genuinely didn't think it was that bad - the numeracy group responded to requests, albeit after count downs, and I waited for silence before talking. I honestly don't know what they expected; mind you, a copy of the behaviour policy/expectations etc might have been nice. As would proper plans and resources. So... How many of you have had a complaint made about you? Did it affect the amount of work you got? I don't get much work as it is so I can't see this panning out well. The woman from the agency was very nice about today but it's upsetting all the same, especially as my confidence has been down for a while. Supply seems to be all great days then rubbish ones.
