Top tips to cope with stress

15th September 2006 at 01:00
* Don't panic. The chances are everyone else is feeling the same.

* Acknowledge what you have already achieved. Don't let one bad day or a stroppy parent write off years of experience.

* Make links with other heads. Look to share ideas and strategies for everything from pupils' projects to administration tasks.

* Make time to meet colleagues and other headteachers to see what is going on in their world. Often you will find it is the same as your own.
