    Can you tell us about yourself? What subject would you be willing to lead? How do you ensure successful learning for every child in your class? How would you make your classroom inclusive? Can you tell us what you have done in regards to teaching a creative curriculum? What skills would you bring to the school? What behaviour management strategies do you use and how would you implement them? Can you tell us about a lesson you are really proud of? Why do you want to work at the school?

    Good luck :)
  3. Good luck!!!
    I had my interview on Monday and got the job. If you had studied the forum carefully I'm sure you will be fine.
    One of my questions was on reading as it's in the school's
    improvement plan and how I would support it. I talked about systhetic
    phonics, screening, fidelity to the method and using it across all KS. I
    mentioned Get them reading early and book banding system.
    done three interviews in last 2 months, they all asked about a good
    lesson either to give an example or to describe what it should be like-
    but you still you need to showwhat you've done in your teaching.
    asked how I would work alongside with other adults in the classroom; I
    talked about supportive environment, giving responsibility and clear
    objectives and goals.
    In two of my interview they asked about the
    role ot the classroom displays. I talked making the classroom bright
    and cheerful, increasing children's self-esteem and reinforcing current
    I can't remember any more but I hope I've helped a bit.
    Keeping my fingers crossed for you!
  4. well i've just had my interview and in all honesty i don't think the job is mine. I think i was too vague on some answers and waffley, but i think i answered others well. i was kicking myself when i came out though as i kept on saying to myself that i should have said this, should have said that! aggghhhhhh i hate interviews!

    thanks for the help guys

    But you don't know that yet!
    Did you use Middlemarch's mind-mapping technique in your preparation?
    Whilst you wait ...

  6. yes i did i tried that technique very useful! I havent heard from the school, they said they would phone this afternoon, so its looking like its gone to someone else. They might not get back to me at all.
