I'm applying for a job at an independent school for the first time. I've spent the first four years of my career in a tough inner-city school that has languished at the bottom of league tables for a long time. I have learnt s great deal, and developed significantly ,but I'm having trouble writing my personal statement as the two contexts are so different. The results I've achieved have been decent for the context I've been in, but on paper they sound quite rubbish when compared to the percentages plastered over this school's website?! Even my pastoral experience seems wholly irrelevant. I have a background in SEN but I'm not sure if that's of much use in a private school. Am I kidding myself thinking I can make this drastic change? Or is there a way to make all that I have learned about safeguarding, childhood trauma, behaviour management, and EAL differentiation relevant to a semi-rural selective school?
