Interview As An Assistant Head At A Mantained Nursery School


Recommended Posts


I've got an interview as an Assistant Head at a maintained Nursery School linked to a Children's Centre. I have lots of experience in a Reception class, I am a EYFS Leading Teacher and Moderator but not a lot of experience in Nursery. I was wondering if anyone could help me on what they might ask me at my Interview.

Thank you in advance.

Hello there Clawton9. Well done on securing your interview. Ive never interviewed for this kind of position but I would guess that your interview might include

your knowledge of the EYFS and specific regulations re maintained sector.

your knowledge and experience of children centre services as you will be closely linked to the CC.

Your knowledge of managing a possibly large team

Something on equalities or inclusion.


Have a look at your person spec and job description, this could give you a good clue as to what might come out


Good luck with it all,

Great advice from Mundia :o I'd also add:

*observation and recording children's levels of development

*transitions, especially settling new children into nursery

*partnerships with families


Good luck and let us know how it goes xD

I didn't get the job. Apparently I talked too much about ICT! I thought this was a strange way to tell me I hadn't got the job and not my view of the interview. Never mind. It obviously wasn't the job for me.
