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.
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.

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.
