I am an NQT and have just come out of a difficult meeting with a parent, which I have been really stressed about all week. Won’t go into details for obvious reasons! My head is so wonderfully supportive and I seriously don’t know how I would have got through this week without her wisdom, support and very good advice. Just wanted to say thank you to all the heads out there that are really behind your staff, it makes such a HUGE difference and this week has made me realise how lucky I am to have a head like mine for my NQT year (and hopefully beyond!). Enjoy your well-earned weekends everyone. I’ll be getting a much needed glass of wine methinks!
