The second episode of this season sees us debating the worth of extra-curricular activities. Often a large part of school life, do they distract too much from the core work of teachers, and is enough done in recognition of the efforts that are put in?
This podcast marks perhaps the first time we disagree on an issue, as well as straying in to other areas of school life, for instance the role of the form tutor and how to best support students outside the classroom. As always, do get in touch if you want to discuss any of the issues that come out of this week's discussion, or if you'd like to appear in a future episode.
As summer winds to a close, alarms get set and pencils are sharpened up and down the country, we want to open Season 3 with a few thoughts on how to get the new school year underway in the best possible way.
From considering the impact and purpose of INSET, to offering thoughts to those starting in new roles or kicking off their careers in teaching, we hope this will be useful in setting the right tone for the coming months!
