The devil is in the detail

Now that you are a few weeks into your job, you should be settling down and hopefully enjoying your chosen career.

But, of course, you are always going to come across niggling little problems and difficulties, which we will try to help you with.

As usual, our experts are on hand to help and advise you on all sorts of areas of your working life, ranging from how to use your registration period effectively, to keeping pupils engaged and motivated.

You may not realise it, but many of the children you teach will not belong to any religious faith, so this month we are focusing on humanism as our cultural feature.

Virginia Hunt looks at the controversial issue of school trips. Should you get involved in organising them, or is the risk too great? It's a choice you will almost certainly have to make at some stage.

And there's much more in this issue besides.

As ever, though, keep us updated on your progress and write to us with your questions, problems and other special requests.
