1, Be kind to yourself
Don’t schedule anything for first thing Monday morning that you know will cause anxiety to you or colleagues on Sunday evening. Sometimes, of course, it might be unavoidable – and you can’t predict when Ofsted will call – but for those things (meetings especially) which you have control over, plan them for when the week is in full swing. Having said that, for some colleagues, tackling a challenging situation first thing on Monday rather than allowing it to linger might be a better option. So, keep in mind what works best for those involved if you can.
