THANK YOU for an incredible response to our advertised vacancies of Head teacher, Site Manager and Office Manager for the day.
After receiving 76 amazing applications, the interview panel shortlisted and then today have interviewed the successful candidates.
We spoke to ALL the children about the process of applying for a job and they have all showed great resilience and understanding, even how to handle disappointment if they did not secure an interview this time. We will follow up on all of this even further in our exciting Career Related Learning week next week! More details to follow.
And so – we are pleased to announce the vacancies for Head Teacher, Site Manager and Office Manager have now been filled!
Congratulations to the successful candidates who will be contacted by telephone this evening by a member of the interview panel.
Here is what Mrs Cheese thought of the whole process ;
I had the pleasure of interviewing pupils for the role of site manager. It was such a pleasure being a part of something that truly gives children real world experience. The answers were all fantastic! It’s amazing to hear how their creative and imaginative minds see roles throughout the school. It was also great to hear that they all wanted to help others and make sure the school was in perfect working order and a special place to be! Congratulations to everyone who participated! It takes such courage to put yourself out there, so I hope you’re all very proud of yourselves. How cool is it that you applied for your first job in primary school!!??
We include the interview questions just in case you want to have a go at holding your own interviews at home: (the panel scored each answer out of 5 and the candidate with the highest score out of 25 was hired!)
1.Tell me three of your favourite things.
2. What’s the first thing you would do in the role you have applied for?
3. If you had to make a new school rule what would it be?
4. What makes our school a special place?
5. Do you have any questions about the job role?
WELL DONE AND WE ARE SO PROUD OF YOU ALL !
