Hi all, I was just wondering how other deputies and members of the smt go about ensuring that they do enough to support their headteacher fully. I'm a new deputy and there is so much to learn! I have a great friendship with my head, we are always chatting, laughing and playing pranks on each other. My head shares a lot with me as long as I make the effort to seek them out. I have a full year 6 teaching commitment but always try to find my head twice but at least once to 'check in'as such and to ask if they need anything done. Sometimes I feel as if I am pestering but how else can I make sure that I am being supportive?
