A few months ago I sat and wrote some priorities for the next academic year.  I came across them a few days ago and thought I’d blog on them:

Things to say no to

  • Boys’ Brigade Weekends Away (2 weekends per year).
  • Leading a youth cell group.
  • Regularly attending the Tonbridge & Malling Youth Association.
  • Regularly attending  the Trench Neighbourhood Action Group.
  • 50% of Connexions Networking meetings.
  • A local secondary school’s Yr 5 transition days.
  • A local secondary school’s Governors role.
  • Doing less Fairtrade presentations in local secondary schools.

Things to focus on

  • Management, leading, and pastoring of adults
  • Writing of resources and articles
  • Doing further study (possibly including the gaining of JNC status)
  • The transition of year 6s including those about to attend our local secondary school
  • Moving mentoring (both for me and by me) to school holidays
  • Recruiting and training of leaders
  • Delegation of administrative tasks

What are some things you’re having to say no to, and what are the other things you’re focussing more on.
