Hi

I have heard today that if you are applying for new jobs you can only put your head teacher down as a reference rather than other SLT members.

Is this true??

Also if another SLT member does your reference does your head need to have a copy or see it? hmm

I have put the deputy head down as my headteacher is well known for giving less than flattering references!!

Thanks

Any applications I've filled in have always specified current headteacher as the first reference. In fact one application required the 2 references to be current and previous headteacher. However if the application form doesn't specify then I would have thought you could choose? As long as you've informed the Head that you've applied for a new job as well, as they need to approve time off for interview, and the new Head may well contact them whether they are specified as a reference in any case, for Safeguarding reasons.
