    A4 History and Pshe are always a good start. Or an inspiring character from a book study.

    A8 By accepting that everyone has a different teaching style, and supporting colleagues with the boring day to day stuff, even if you don't "like" them. We're all in this together!!

    A5 I show my mistakes, they even point these out to me now. I try and create a culture where mistakes are okay! Lots of praise and lots of smiles 😊

    we don't get many men applying for an infant school. It's not harmful to the children but it's been this way at our school for the last 10 years. We've had a few students and a couple of TAs. Come on men...we need you!! 😊

    What efforts have been made to gain male members of staff? Do you feel the lack of diversity in the staff is harmful to the learning/experience of pupils?

    A7 Without a shadow of a doubt the teachers from my secondary school, particularly the PE department. Mr Hill, Mr Marshall and Mr Byrne. All fostered and harnessed my passion and love of sport, all have given me advice, support and opportunities I’ll never forget.

    A1 definitely, especially in regard to maths. Have you ever seen the video on YouTube Hollywood hates maths? It just shows that it's not cool to be good at maths.

    A3 our school has no male members of staff, so we try and get lots of male role models into school. (Not for our benefit at all!!! 😁)

    A7: Fred Rogers, Jaime Escalante, and Professor Minerva McGonagall.

    A7: my secondary music teacher, Mrs Vicary. Passionate to the core about her subject AND grammar! Hilarious, caring, fiercely individual! Still see her today, she retired when I was 17! 10 years later we’re firm friends and she came to teach my own class last term!

    A5 I make a lot of mistakes, in a world of low risk takers and great pressure to be perfectionists...I make mistakes. My class mantra; making mistakes is how we learn. Also, how do you eat an elephant? One bite at a time 😁

    A6. We do through peer mentoring & this works well. We used to have vertical tutor groups - many of the students were great models for younger students. Downside being that some younger students were easily led by less positive older students
