Hi everyone! Two years ago I was applying for jobs as an NQT. A perfect school popped up in a brilliant area - naturally I applied - and I was over the moon to get an interview. However, I also got an interview for a good school that was three days before dream school and was offered the job. Not willing to take risks on possibly not getting dream job and then having nothing, I took the other school and phoned up dream school telling them I already had a job and so unfortunately had to cancel the interview with them. Fast forward two years - another job has come up at dream school and I'm starting to get itchy feet at the school I am currently at as it has changed drastically this year, in ways I am not keen on. I am going to apply for dream job as I have always wondered 'what if', and it still looks as good as before (if not better). My question is, on my look around the school/application/interview, should I make reference to the fact that I have applied before. I see how this could sound strange but I don't want them to dismiss me out of hand because I have applied before and turned them down. How would I approach the subject if I was to mention it? Second question - the school is a CofE and whilst is says that being religious is 'desireable' and not essential, the LEA application form also asks for 3 references, one of which should be from a parish priest or other religious leader if it is a religious school. Not being a chuch goer myself, I can get no such reference. Should I just put a 3rd reference who is not a religious leader?
