Interview for Standards Leader for Mathematics.
I was part of the interview panel involved in the appointment of a Standards Leader for Mathematics at Chulmleigh Community College. There was a strong field of applicants and we interview five candidates. The interview programme included candidates giving an observed Maths lesson, being interviewed by a panel of students, undertaking a task of data analysis and having a formal interview. The senior leaders on the interview panel were Mike Johnson and Neil Payne. I'm delighted we made an excellent appointment.
The Newsletters that our schools produce continue to be an invaluable source of information. It's great to learn about some of the brilliant activities that can be found in our schools.
