Like mother, like daughter

Just a quick "funny" from my daughter. She is in year 6 and sits on her school council. Yesterday the school interviewed for a new head and the council were asked to participate in the process. My daughter's question to the candidate she was interviewing was "will you apply for academy status if you get the job?"
I feel a combination of maternal pride whilst at the same time cringing !!

Good for her! Let's hope more school pupils ask the same question.

Awesome question. Was she satisfied with the answer?

I have also found out, via a staff member who is was in the interview room at the time, that the CfBT advisor to the school was there too. I bet he must have choked!

I am pleased to say that this is a different point entirely. It was an interview for a job, not an assessment of an existing teacher. The kids did not get to see the candidates teach. The governors, rightly, wanted to see how each candidate interacted with the children of the school.
