Overall rating 3 out of 53.8 (75 ratings)

Every teacher should have a seating plan, especially with a new class. Here's a short guide to explain why you need one, and how to make one. There's also a simple (and I'm not kidding) template for you to make a seating plan and print it off. Warning: you must know how to open up a Word document....

Thanks Tom - I can use it for my video conferencing when it is difficult to identify students

Tom, our seating plans have to display; name, current grade, target grade, end of KS grade, pupil premium (or not) and be updated several times a year. Is this common?
