    On most applications, it asks whether you would be happy for the new school to contact your references prior to interviewing. Does it look dodgy if you request that they do not approach current HT before interview stage?

    Yes. Due to safer recruiting schools require references before the interview stage to help with shortlisting.

    Thanks! I've ticked yes to both. I'll deal with the consequences if reference is untrue/negative.
