    Dear Theo,

    The school I'm applying to has only two requirements for the job.

    I was thinking I should look through their website and find other things they might find important but should I put these in the ES, and if so how should I phrase it? Should I still put "your requirements" at the top?

    Making the ES with only two requirements seems very short

    Thanks (again!)

    Although not Theo, I'm sure he will be along later. I would still put your requirements at the top, and I would go on to point out all the things YOU have to offer the school. Make the executive summary unique and individual to you to show off your skills and talents and make the school see why they need to employ you. Or if you have applied to other schools using an e.s. then steal some of those ideas as a starting point. Hope this helps. Best of luck.

    Yes, start off with the specific things that they ask for.
    Then get a job or person spec from elsewhere. Either one you've already done, or one for a similar job. there are masses available on the TES website.
    But instead of putting in the LH column Your requirements, put something like An effective KS1/2 teacher and then in the RH column My experience
    Best of luck!
