I am on a very temporary contract and really need/want to become permanent. Without sounding like Peggy from Hi-de-Hi I feel that my best course of action is to impress the Head teacher through a project. I have already been to various leaders offering my help in areas where I have experience but I have been told that it isn't necessary as they outside agencies etc. Is it really lame to go straight to the head with an email offering to take something on? I have a pretty light timetable.
