    Yes, Little Miss has got it right here.
    Make sure that you prioritise and have the main points of the job description, as that is what they will want you to be actually able to do. But also, if space in the one side (normal size - no doing it in a size 10 font!) do include some of the main things from the person spec.
    Use your common sense here in prioritising; if it says in JD things like Preparing and delivering lessons, marking and assessing, etc as spearate things, you could probably combine them with your evidence being 2 years' successful teaching Yr 4 , for example.
    Good luck!
