Working in Schools is not just in the classroom.
As a supply teacher you are expected to conduct yourself in a professional manner. Make sure you introduce yourself to the office staff, teachers and head teacher, do this either on arrival or throughout the day if possible.
Make sure you find things out, ask questions you’ll need to know about the registers and break time. It may be a good idea to find out about the behaviour policies.
Interaction with the students is key, being there to help in and out of the classroom. If you come across any problems when you have created relationships with students, you must report any issues to the head of year, deputy head or a teacher.
To be a successful supply teacher you need to make sure your’re willing to mark students work and teach different key stages. If you treat every day like an interview/trial day you have more chance of making the right impression and getting asked to come back and work at the school.
Don’t forget to have a good time, talk to other staff members at lunch time/break time, make friends.
