These are intended to support existing or new heads of year as well as being potential questions you may get asked on interview. In this set I answer: how do you deal with angry parent? how do you support a student struggling to fit in? how do you lead a team? how do you deal with poor student behaviour? do you monitor student progress? These answers are suggestions – they are not necessarily definitive. If preparing for interview, I always recommend you tailor your questions to the school you’re applying to and ensure you are giving specific examples of what you’re able to offer. If in post, always remember the policies of your school.

In addition, I provide the three priorities I would identify in timed conditions as well as the ‘answers’ I would provide in an interview circumstance.
