we had our staff meeting today, the first part of the meeting was on reminding us that bullying is a major concern at secondary school, with students trying to pressure others into doing things that they don't want to do, how far can you push someone till they break and fight back. Just small little things like calling someone names and mocking them in class. Bullying needs to be reported and not just kept to the teacher that has been told. Tell someone in the Senior Leadership team or the school couneller.
The next part of the meeting was on professionalism and we were reminded on what was expected of us as professionals. It doesn't end when we get our degree or teaching certificate and registration. It is forever, we need to be professional in all of our dealing with students and parents.
Also I have managed to put in my request for the Mounatin Bike Nationals, now I need to do the RAMS forms and parent information sheet.
