    Does it really matter??
    Have you had experience of interviewing before? If you have and the other person hasn't maybe the head wants to give the other person some experience of doing this for their career development.
  2. I am assuming the future acting deputy is a colleague, competent and capable of taking on the role of DHT.
    You should be able to trust them and your HT.
    It is a good opportunity for the future acting deputy- will add to their CVC and make them feel that they are valued inb the role not just filling in.
    What's not fair?
    Think of it as delegating! A most needed skill for HT, DHT, mother!
    Best wishes x
  3. Is the interview for your replacement?
    If not, and it's for a normal teacher, i think you should be involved. Have you told you're head that you'd like to do it?

    Look at it in terms of the acting deputy being taken into the HT's confidence is a real and practical way rather than you being sidelined because of your upcoming maternity leave.
    Which is best for the school?
