Agency and also staff known to the school for many years who are now semi-retired.
Yes, we give each supply teacher a pack of information regarding the school day, expectations regarding marking etc.
Visitors to the school are always welcomed by the Head and taken to the relevant room.
As far as is possible the work will be planned by school to ensure minimum change for the children. However, there may be occasions where this is not possible and the supply teacher, in this instance, will be expected to have suitable resources to hand. We expect them to mark all work that has been completed. We welcome supply staff into the staff room as we do any visitor. We do not usually expect them to do playground duties if on short term supply.
Flexibility, reliability and a sense of humour!
