Teachers who teach more than one class were booked up very quickly so we only got to see about half of them and there was a lot of waiting around. Is this the usual system in secondary schools or does anyone know of a better one?!
Yes this is usual and I found it very frustrating when my child was in year 7. However, by year 8 I did what everyone else did. If a teacher that I wanted to see (even if they were not on my list) was free I would politely ask if they were able to see my there and then. Not once did anyone say no. It was just a case of being very quick on my feet and very polite. Your school may have a policy of not allowing you to do this but I know it works at ours.
