Disclaimer: I am definitely not a pro but I have been through quite a journey during my first year teaching and these are the things that turned it around for me and allowed me to end the year with a better work life balance and strong love for the profession
1. OBSERVE -as many different teachers as you can, as often as you can. Just because you aren’t a trainee anymore doesn’t mean you can’t set observations up yourself - this was hands down what had the most positive impact on my teaching this year and helped with specific problems

Stonewall are relaunching “School & College Champions Awards”.

Schools must must refer to latest @educationgovuk guidance & their #safeguarding knowledge & not sign up.

“The awards cut across every aspect of the operation of the school...advising teachers to “introduce yourself at the start of the year using your pronouns and encourage students to do the same.”

This is compelled speech. #Teachers contact your unions.

‘in her evidence to @Commonswomequ
earlier this week Stonewall CEO @Nancy_M_K claimed: “one of the things that’s really important to say is that we don’t advocate for the removal of the single sex exemptions.” ‘

This is untrue.

.@Stephen__Adams writes about @bbcbitesize Pronouns article

We have made a formal complaint to the BBC.…
Tanya Carter says : “The BBC is promoting a damaging ideology to children. In so doing, they are breaching their own guidelines on editorial impartiality and the 1996 Education Act, which stipulates that an education provider cannot promote a political ideology to children”.

@bbcbitesize deleting your tweet & then retweeting with replies disabled is not a solution to you promoting political ideology to children. This is against new @educationgovuk guidelines. We will be writing to @GavinWilliamson & @BBC to complain. @Baroness_Nichol @Tanni_GT #LGBT
The image chosen to illustrate the article on twitter & Facebook appears to show a mixed sex changing room. Mixed sex changing undermines #safeguarding.Here is the full article from @bbcbitesize. There are a number of concerns with the article itself.

One of our supporters has successfully challenged her children’s school on their use of the Genderbread figure in #RSE. This graphic goes against latest @educationgovuk guidelines.
#edutwitter #WomenED #LGBTedchat #SLTchat #PSHE
#pastoralchat #LGBT #NQT…
The new @educationgovuk guidelines state that external resources used by schools must be ‘evidence-based’ & that ‘materials which suggest that non-conformity to gender stereotypes should be seen as synonymous with having a different gender identity should not be used’ #edutwitter
We thank her for sharing this so that other #parents & #teachers are able to adapt for their own use. We are a grassroots movement who rely on sharing skills & resources. Please see previous thread incorporating concerning use of the genderbread graphic.

Safe Schools Alliance support good quality inclusive #RSE & #PSHE for all children. This must be biologically accurate, #safeguarding compliant & correctly represent U.K. law. The materials we have seen from many providers do not do this.
It is the responsibility of each individual school to ensure the suitability of any resources that they use with pupils. They must also comprehensively consult with parents. We will be releasing more guidance shortly on which organisations do not comply with new guidelines.

10 tips for NQTs (and maybe experienced teachers too 😉)

A thread for an #NQT
1. Keep it simple.

You probably won’t get through everything you’ve planned. Don’t worry about it and move on.
2. Schedule how you will use your PPA.

Don’t lose your PPA chatting about nothing with whoever is nearby.

10 tips for NQTs (and maybe even experienced teachers too 😉)

2. Schedule how you will use your PPA. Don’t lose your PPA chatting about nothing with whoever is nearby.
3. Learn some essentials. Get to know the office staff, the caretaker, work the guillotine and photocopier.
4. Figure out who are the lemon suckers - and avoid them.

Just spent 1/2 hour in the ☀️ colour coding my planner so that I keep on top of marking and homework. I don't know how anyone does it without a system 🤯
Pink = set homework
Green = collect books
Yellow = collect/check homework
Red pen = books to mark
#geographyteacher #NQT Image
I definitely rotated that image. Och well.

I have this system because I like to be really organised, keeps me clam with all the other NQT stresses.
Also, I got quite a lot of grief back in September (September of my NQT) for having missed my 2 week marking target for one class
Double marking on a Thursday because I like to get out as early as possible on a Friday.
This system ensures every class is marked/whole class feedback prepped every 2 weeks, and that every class gets one piece of homework every week.
Started using it after Oct half term.
