I'm looking at applying for deputy or assistant head jobs for Easter or September start - primary. I'm currently a middle leader and have lots of good experience. I see my possible options as: 1) deputy in a 1 form entry primary school. 2) Assistant head in a larger primary school where there is a deputy so I wouldn't be next in line if the head was off 3) Assistant head in a larger primary where there is no deputy so I would be next in line if the head was off Any thoughts about the pros and cons of each? (I know the difference between deputy and assistant if the head goes off long term) Would there be much difference between #1 and #3 if the head stayed long term and didn't have a long period of time off? Thanks!
