Starting a job as a new headteacher can feel like you’ve been thrown in at the deep end, but it doesn’t have to feel like that. A few simple strategies to help you get through the first few weeks can make a big difference to how you feel.

This checklist gives you a thorough base to start from, breaking it down into the 
important areas such as getting to know your colleagues, building relationships, understanding the culture and ethos of the school, as well as the priority tasks such as checking the safeguarding procedures and health and safety policies and so on.

We recommend that you download the checklist, and use it to help you stay focussed and to prioritise the important jobs that you will need to do when you start.

We wish you all the best in your new job!
