It’s been a ridiculously long break, but the break is broken abruptly tomorrow. We’re straight in the deep-end, running a Creative Thinking session for 75 staff and 10 pupils at Arrow Vale School in Redditch.
I’m fully aware how precious In Service Training Days are in schools and how resentful staff can be if they are deemed to be wasted doing things less valuable than preparing for their lessons the following day. I am therefore quite anxious about tomorrow and have been at regular intervals throughout the holiday. Fingers crossed.
