Job Swap Day
Being a teacher for the afternoon
After the success of our previous ‘job swap day’, we invited the children to apply to be a teacher for the afternoon. Mr Stevens and Mrs Maskell then interviewed 25 children. They were both impressed by the confidence that the children displayed. The successful children then had to plan and deliver a lesson.
'I think it is great that the children are given so many exciting, challenging opportunities at primary school. It certainly is character building. I wish I’d had some of these opportunities at primary school,’ - Y4 parent.
‘I won’t be so scared in lessons to put my hand up because I know I can do it,’ - Y4 child.
The school invited all children to apply for the position of being the Headteacher, Assistant Headteacher and school secretary for the day. The children were asked to complete an application form and then the successful applicants were interviewed by teachers and governors.

Prachi Raizada (Y5) said, "Being a school secretary for the day has made me realise it is important to be organised."
Corey Ford's mum said, "Acting at Headteacher for the day has enabled Corey to have a better understanding on how to achieve his goals and how to work successfully as a team."
