Get­ting to know a new teacher


The eas­i­est way to calm your child’s nerves about this is to re­mind them that this is a nerve-rack­ing time for teach­ers too, as­sures Sarah Bran­non, head of prepara­tory school at Brighton col­lege dubai. “en­cour­age your child to try and share their ideas and feel­ings with their teacher and their re­la­tion­ship will quickly build. Teach­ers will ex­plain class rou­tines and how things are go­ing to work, but don’t be afraid to ask if you for­get.”

Nonethe­less, if your child is un­usu­ally ner­vous, there are some prac­ti­cal steps you can take, ex­plains dr Sal­iha. “Speak to the teacher and let them know that your child is slow to warm up and may need some as­sis­tance in get­ting com­fort­able.”
