Glastonbury Thorn School


Head teacher for the day!

Lots of children dream of running the school and imagine what it would be like to be in charge…well one of our pupils got to do just that!


Lucas, from Year 2, won a Christmas bash prize of being the ‘Head teacher for the day’ and got to see for himself exactly what the job entails. He shadowed our Head teacher, Fiona Webb, for the whole day in January, undertaking her day to day tasks with her.


Lucas enjoyed writing a letter to parents, giving out the certificates in our weekly superstar assembly, listening to a training presentation, monitoring teaching and learning across the school, carrying out playground duty and discussing important school matters with our school council members.

All in all he and Fiona had a great day and Lucas concluded that being a Head teacher was a lot harder than it looks but lots of fun too!
