Starting my Primary NQT a quarter of the way through the year with a very difficult class.

    Hi everyone,

    After a lapse in confidence, ability, sense and much more I spent a few days trawling TES and speaking to friends and can only thank everyone for their generous support and advice. It really is a unique community to be part of.

    Now I have battled personally within my head and came out on top wanting to fight and go for it I wanted to ask for a little more advice. My earlier post discussed how I am taking a very troublesome and volatile class from a wonderful and inspirational teacher who has worked wonders with the class yet still has a constant battle every other minute to keep a lid on the behaviour of a third of the class.

    January we are working together ( I am taking lead role as of next week) and then she will leave and I will be their only teacher. Ofcourse children struggle with change and structure and I fear that with this class it is even more apparent. Can anyone give me any tips and advice that they think might be very important taking on a class at such a time in this way.

    They already do not respond to me like they do their current teacher (which is understandable as she has built up a relationship with them and is incredibly positive and happy with them).

    Lots of advice or thoughts are really really appreciated.

    kind regards

    A willing guy ready to go for it
