Headteacher Interviews – Thoughts on Supply

05/12/14

Prue Barnes is the respected headteacher of Newport Primary School in Leyton, East London. Originally trained in Australia, she came to England as a supply teacher 19 years ago; since then she has taught across London and, as she moved into more senior roles, has helped a number of failing schools to become successful.

In this video, Prue talks about supply: her first day in the UK as a supply teacher, pupil's reactions to overseas trained supply staff, and what headteachers really think about supply.
