I asked the school where I am a dinner lady if I could possibly do my placement there. At first they seemed really keen to help me out and asked for information to which I gave them. Now they are saying they don't have anyone with the time to mentor me. I've to take more information to them before its a defo no but they didn't seem as positive....Just writing a letter to headteacher now and fingers firmly crossed it works out. They are confused as to what their role is in my placement and said the info I sent them is very brief.
