RE: Primary School Teacher

Dear Head of Primary,

I read with interest your posting for the vacancy of Primary School Teacher on the TES website. I believe I possess the necessary skills and experience you are seeking and would make a valuable addition to your School.

I believe that I am the best candidate for your recently advertised Teaching vacancy. My love of teaching can be seen in my actions and career to date. I possess a genuine interest in the development of the children I teach, and will do everything possible to ignite a desire to learn in the minds of young people. I have achieved this through planning engaging, creative lessons, which allow for discussion and research and the application of skill being taught.

I come to you as someone who has the ability to hold engaging classes that capture the attention of the whole classroom. I am an expert at establishing clear objectives for each lesson and then working to meet those specific goals. Aside from this, I have an effective classroom management style that enforces discipline whilst at the same time encouraging creativity and discussion. As a result the children I have taught feel valued and are more willing to participate in activities; even when those activities are outside of their comfort zone.

On a personal level I am self-reflective, possess a strong willingness to change and am always looking at ways in which I can improve myself. I have high expectations of myself, and take my responsibility as a teacher very seriously. I have gained a wide range of transferable skills from my previous teaching jobs that are directly related to your position, including:

  • Developing positive relationships with members of staff and pupils.
  • Maintaining a creative classroom setting which is engaging
  • Having strong knowledge of particular subject areas such as Literacy and Science
  • Understanding the barriers for EAL and SEN children
  • A basic understanding of Spanish

For me it would be an honour to be a part of and contribute to a school like yours that has such a high reputation.

I have attached my CV for your review and I look forward to speaking with you further regarding the available position.

Thank you, in advance, for your consideration.

Kind Regards,
