1. Create a relationship with the parents

Now more than ever you’re going to need to build up a good relationship with the parents of your students. They have more of an impact on them than anyone else in their lives, so you need to get to know them, and understand what their home life is like.
The best way to do this is to make yourself available at the end of the school day, when children are being picked up. You can chat with them, and share what’s happened in the day. This works wonders for building strong relationships.

2. Be positive in the classroom

A popular piece of advice given to new teachers is ‘don’t mile before Christmas’, in order to cement your role as the boss in the classroom. The fact is that positivity goes a long way towards a better behaved classroom, so encourage and help your students wherever you can. A few words of praise when they’re getting right will sit so much better than a heavy handed approach when things go wrong.

3. Know your subject

As a primary teacher this sounds like a difficult task, but you need a good understanding of your subject in order to teach it. If you don’t, it can have a serious impact on your students’ learning.

4. Your relationships with your students matter

The environment in your classroom will go a long way towards your success. A teacher that encourages a positive environment will be able to understand their students’ needs better, and therefore help them achieve their best every day.
