Im Key Stage leader, maths and science co-ordinator in a 4 class, small village primary school (no extra money for these responsibilities). There is no scope to move into a different year group.The staff are wonderful, children and parents mixed but cant complain and I'm very happy there.
Job has come up in a 2 form entry school, much closer to home, more scope for movement within my preferred key stage. Nicer area. No subject responsibility.
I have an interview. Not sure if its the right thing to do as in some ways its a backwards move but in others it offers potential. After working for a MONSTER of a HT at a previous school Im worried about leaving somewhere thats a happy place to go to the unknown.
Ultimately I know its my decision but I would be interested to hear your thoughts.
Well you can't lose aything by going to the interview and getting a feel for the school and whether you could fit in there. Don't forget interviews are 2-way. You have to feel right about the school too and you can withdraw right up to the point where you're asked, "Are you stiill a firm cadidate for the post?"if you don't feel certain.
