Supply Teacher Welcome Pack Ideas

<Article in progress>

Supply Teacher Welcome Packs should / could contain:

Behaviour Policy
Marking Policy
Staff List
Safeguarding Information
Basic outline / timetable of the school day
What to do for lunch
Emergency Contact
Realistic lesson plans
Seating plan with photos (secondary)
SEN needs
Class List

Make sure that your planning is accessible. Unfortunately, it happens all to often that supply teachers arrive in good time at a school, to be told that the planning is on the server, and they have no password with which to access it. Print it out and stick it up at least a week in advance! You never know when you might be ill.

Make sure that someone in your school is the assigned meeter and greeter of supply teachers, and shows them the fire exits, toilets, staffroom, assembly / lunch hall, exits to playgrounds, Head's office, manager's office and point of contact. They should escort the teacher to the classroom and show them where to find the planning for the day. A brief outline of the day should be shared, including times of assemblies, break times and end of school. Let the teacher know if any extra staff will be in the classroom that day and how they will be / should be deployed.
