Headteacher Application - Personal Statement and cover letter. (Successful 2020))

(0)
A comprehensive covering letter and personal statement which I wrote during my recent job search. Although it obviously needed to be adapted to suit the needs of each school that I was applying for, I found that having a ‘base’ letter was extremely useful. I was shortlisted for each job I sent this application to (and gained a headship) There was nothing on line at the time that I could use to guide/scaffold me, so I hope that someone finds this useful!

Crime Scene Investigation Activity

(4)
A plan which contains all of the instructions, and the resources to set up a crime scene in your classroom. The only thing missing is for you to include the samples from your own crime scene (as this was how I organised the original lesson - with children genuinely ‘detecting’ the crime. However, I have added fingerprint samples, and crime scene photos for a quicker turnaround! I have used this several times, very successfully, both as a WOW topic starter, as science investigation, and even, once as a BIG writing hook. Please leave feedback.
