Hello all I am in a position where I want to take the next step up on the old career ladder and am not sure what option - if any - is the best one. I am currently a middle leader in primary school, been teaching for 6 years, held a lit co post for 2 and now a phase leader. I am responsible for assessing data and tracking pupil progress, aps, app etc., deploying staff, intervention, observations, assessment,the list goes on. I am confident that an assistant head job wouldn't be too much of a stretch - clearly depending on the role itself - and am wondering whether a deputy head position would be too much or a challenge worth taking on? I know that schools will vary and positions vary but just wondered what people thought and whether they think go and try or hold your horses... Thanks!!
