Unfortunately, this is rather practical advice - at the very least, should try to figure out how to best support your SLs.

One thing that ppl often try to do when starting out is to attempt to do all the work by themselves - the scope of work increases drastically the further you rise; learn to delegate and assign good officers to help get things done.

Unregistered OP here, am grateful for the help and heartened by the support! I understand it will not be easy.

Iíll be taking it up in my current school, replacing the current SH who is leaving. It is a primarily IP position but it is expected I will also do dual SH duties for another non-IP portfolio (e.g. Pupil Welfare), as the previous SH did. It will be one year internal appointment first starting next year. As for my background, I would be considered an experienced teacher, but I definitely have less than 10 years in the service.

Grateful for any advice!

Am I being underpaid? I read in this thread that some are already getting 3.9k with just second upper...
When were you offered and when was the second upper person offered? Look at the economy now. Starting salary takes into account prevailing economic conditions. If youíre not happy with 3.8k, there are many others in line to take your place.

3.9 is high. I only got a low side of 3k years back when I joined MOE
