Personal Statement for Assistant Headteacher for Teaching, Learning and Curriculum FOR ADULTS

Personal Statement for Assistant Headteacher for Teaching, Learning and Curriculum FOR ADULTS

(10)
This is my own personal statement for the position of Assistant Headteacher for Teaching, Learning and Curriculum - a job which I got. Being able to download someone else’s personal statement while writing mine, would have been a huge help. Therefore, I thought offering mine, would give practitioners an option to view one before they start writing their own and thus having new ideas and a clear structure. Obviously, every personal statement should be tailored to the person specification but it is easy to use ideas from this personal statement and shuffle them around accordingly. I have removed specific names from the personal statement and instead typed, XXX.

Autism - An informative presentation on understanding autism for primary school children

(1)
I created this presentation to support my class in understanding a girl in our class that had autism. It was very important to me as many questions were being asked and some pupils were saying unkind things. After we went through this presentation, pupils were much more understanding and wanting to help. This 14 slide presentation is perfect for an assembly or lesson. It goes through in child-friendly language, what autism is, how people 'get' autism', what people with autism might do and why it's important to be a good friend to all kinds of different people. If you have any questions or need any support, send me a message and I'll do anything I can to help. My resources are all English spelling.

Promoting SMSC - British Values - informative assembly and guidance on running a British Values Day

Promoting SMSC - British Values - informative assembly and guidance on running a British Values Day

(2)
I recently ran a very successful British Values Day. I began the day by inviting parents/carers/governors in and delivered the attached assembly presentation to them as well as to pupils. I then gave each class a value of their own (see guidance). Classes were able to be as creative as they liked but were asked to give me one outstanding piece of display work so I could create a British Values display at the entrance of the school (see photo of display). Pupils dressed-up in their cultural clothes or wore red/blue/white and all brought in a 'gold coin donation' to give to charity. The assembly goes through each of the British Values and their meanings. There is a song and video clip attached as well as a short quiz at the end. Promoting British Values is extremely important, Ofsted say: 'Pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development and, within this, the promotion of fundamental British values, are at the heart of the school’s work.' Powerpoint could also be used for a KS2 lesson on British Values. If you have any questions or need any support, send me a message and I'll do anything I can to help.

NPQSL Final Combined Task - completed 2016

NPQSL Final Combined Task - completed 2016

(92)
This assignment includes my: blood, sweat and tears! This is my NPQSL assignment and is focused on improving writing in a primary school. I really wish I’d had an NPQSL example assignment to look at while I was writing mine as it would have stopped me second guessing myself. However, I passed with flying colours and am now offering mine to you to make the process much easier. I uploaded the assignment on 8.2.16 and received feedback on 29.3.16. Feedback (as shown on first page) awarded all of the 9 competencies as passed at the required level. The written feedback was excellent and only includes strengths, no areas for development. I have deleted several appendices because they included photographic evidence of specific events/individuals. I would recommend that you consider doing this also as visuals are always a nice break from a lengthy piece of text. However, I have kept my action plan and report to the Headteacher in the appendices as I feel these are important for your reference. My resources always take me a lot of time and effort to create so I hope that they help to save you some precious time - please do review my resources. Thank you! A section from my written feedback: 'Strengths were demonstrated in Delivering continuous improvement as your priorities for improvement were clearly linked to your vision for the project. You regularly reviewed progress and reflected on actions and achievements of pupils in writing. The Action plan and strategies were fully implemented and you skilfully monitored planning, teaching, learning and assessment data. Throughout the project you remained solution-focused. In terms of Modelling excellence in leadership of teaching and learning you demonstrated excellent leadership of teaching and learning. You set up and embedded the writing initiatives and adapted the teaching and learning approaches to suit the needs of pupils. It is evident that you have high expectations, model excellence and vision and have shared ideas and practice very effectively. Staff have been provided with the clarity they need in order to feel empowered and accountable in their role. Strengths were demonstrated in Learning focus as you set up and embedded the writing initiative and applied theory and knowledge of learning to improve outcomes for pupils. It is evident that you are committed to learning and achieving excellence and led valuable inset for staff to improve their subject knowledge in grammar, planning and writing. ’

Presentation on improving mental well-being in your school - for SLT and governors

(0)
This presentation was created for SLT and governors to consider how to improve the mental well-being of their staff; a topic, which I feel strongly about. In the current climate, it is more important than ever to look after the mental well-being of staff. This presentation has: an intro, facts and figures, a look into what mental well-being is and how it impacts a school and some tips for getting started on how to improve the mental well-being of your staff. This presentation can be adapted to suit other audiences by changing some of the wording. If you have any questions or need any support, send me a message and I'll do anything I can to help.
