@TheoGriff can you help a rusty applicant? After teaching in the same school for 7 years finally looking to move on... very out of touch with application forms it seems! No mention of an E.S in the app form...just a box that is titled ' Your supporting statement' and a brief description along the lines of .. 'refer to the job spec and outline how your own experience matches this.' No request for a supporting statement/covering letter etc that I can see anywhere. My initial thoughts were to use this box to bullet point in response to job spec(in similar style to E.S) and then attach a letter to head expanding on all this, if that makes sense! many thanks in advance to anyone who can help/suggest!
