    Hi Theo
    I am filling out an application form there is no space for an executive summary but I have been asked to write a seperate letter of application. I am relating this to the person and job specification. In the job specification it is asking for knowledge of national strategies for key stage 2. I am aware of national strategies and I know that some are more relevant to some schools than others. How many do I have to refer to?
    I was thinking of talking about a few that I have experienced and what I know about them, but unsure on which ones to talk about. Should I speak to the head teacher and ask which national stategies they are using at present?
    Thank you in advance

    sepArate, lad, sepArate.
    Or lass.
    I would not advise writing a letter about your knowledge of national strategies. How boring.
    Just include this in your executive summary.
    Knowledge of national strategies for KS2. 2 years successful teaching year 5 at St Mary's School. or Two successful teaching practices Yrs 4 and 5 at St Mary's School.
    Then write your letter about other things. have you read the shortlisting clickables inside the Welcome thread? Jolly useful!
    Best of luck
