What do you want from an NQT?

Discussion in 'English' started by charlotteu, Jun 6, 2011.

  1. Your mentor/HOD should get in touch and give you details of classes etc as well as any existing schemes of work. Decide on your rules/sanctions - with reference to school policies - and anything you want in your classroom straight away (you might leave it until you get some work from them).
    Read!! A summer with a range of books is very useful as well as being enjoyable and a break before the difficult term ahead
  2. Thanks for the reply. Yes my mentor said that we should be getting timetables/class lists in the coming weeks. I'll ask for a copy of their behaviour/rewards policy when I go in, too.

    I've been thinking about my classroom and I have came up with a few ideas (form class bulletin board etc) and the school have said that I can go in over the summer and sort it out which is really nice of them.

    I can't wait to read over the summer! The school are moving to an exam board that I am unfamiliar with so I'm excited to read some new texts.

    Thanks again for the advice!
