    Primary - despite the upsurge in pupil numbers in some areas, notably London, Bristol and other big cities - is still currently an area with an oversupply of teachers, so there may be absolutely nothing wroing with your application, except that it's one of 250 for the same job.
    Tip for next time - number the questions if there is more than one!
    Q1 Just put N/A
    Q2 You should put your current or most recent employer in a job involving children. That's the requirement. Normally means the Head, or PGCE mentor. You could put your supply agency but they always give very brief references.
    Is there no school where you have gone back more than once? How about someone there?
    Q3 Send it as a separate document. If you are sending a full application letter, then put the E.S. as the third page of the letter, so it gets printed out automatically. Sometimes there is a whole page in the application form called something like Additional information. In that case put the E.S. there and then have a full letter of application.
    Good luck!
