Dear Theo - priorities of the post

    Dear Theo,
    Trying to write a supporting statement at the moment, and looking at your very helpful advice in the FAQs.
    The priorities of your post
    What you think the post is about, based on the clues that they give you. What do they need you to do? How would you fulfil this? This is your chance to show them that they need you
    For an independent school, would it be too corny to say that you believe the priority of the post to be not only the ability to do an excellent job (which I demonstrated in an earlier paragraph) but also something along the lines of fitting in with the community and belonging to the "school family". Or is that not a great idea and should I actually try and pick out something more directly related to the job spec?! But then what if I'm really not sure what the priority of the post is? Is it better to guess and get it wrong or not to guess at all!

    You have browsed around on the Independent Forum, haven't you? There's some great reading there.
