Behaviour management: Always, always ask for a copy of the school's behaviour management policy.  Often your supply teaching agency will have a copy, or there may be one on the school's website.  Look for policy regarding extrinsic rewards (a favourite amongst supply teachers!), traffic light systems etc.
