When directly applying to schools for supply work, should you state your preferred key stage?
I would say in theory 'Yes', but it could cost you work, but in primary you could ask for key stage 2 or key stage 1 only, but in secondary you would have to accept both. This would also apply to agencies as well. As I have said the approach could cost you work, depending on who you deal with.
It's only that I am an NQT who has experience in EYFS and KS1 and years 3 &4 not sure how confident i'd be in upper KS2 5 & 6. I feel that to make a good impression and do a good job, I would need to be honest!
You will be fine with the ages that you are offering!
You can specify pretty much anything you want but be fully prepared for the agency to completely ignore it all!!
I think you should be OK if you're saying you'll go from EYFS to Year 4, that's quite a wide range. Approaching larger schools would be a good plan. I've worked in schools where there are 15 classes in your age range. Good luck!
