    If you want to see how a teacher interacts with pupils when not teaching them, it should never be as part of a formal interview panel of pupils quizzing the candidate! Have a selection of pupils in an informal session (doing something extra-curricular or showing the candidates around) and observe how they interact. It's then the job of the adult observers to decide who fared well, not the children.

    I recently was asked about the level of discipline I would employ -and was judged to be too 'soft'. My advice would be to also show your strength of character and not let your guard down!

    I was once given a ‘guided tour’ by a sixth form student. She decided to stop and talk to her friend for 10 minutes.

    I decided she was ‘fired’ and found a group of year 9 boys to give me a tour. (I had decided I didn’t want the job by this point anyway).

    They took me on a ‘dark side’ of the school tour.

    40 minutes later I signed out, thanked the receptionist, asked her to pass on a letter I scribbled to the head and then went home.....

    The pupil panel interview would have been after lunch. The 6th form girl was on it....
