    I have applied for a DH position and my current head has been contacted for a reference, but I have not heard anything. Is seeking a reference a step toward inviting for interview, or is it just a matter of procedure, and they do this for everyone?

    It's impossible to know for definite - but for quite some years, some schools have sought references prior to shortlisting. You might, therefore, still be in the running or you might not.

    Thank you for your replies - 30 minutes after posting I got invited to interview on Monday! Patience is a virtue, and all that.....

    @TheoGriff I have been through all of your advice and will be feverishly working through it over the weekend. Policies printed off, interview questions ready, mind maps and in-tray exercises ready to go. Fingers crossed....
