This week, some of the Year 6 students have written application letters to Mr Clayton so that they can be interviewed to become headteacher for the day.

 

Below are some examples:

 

Dear Mr Clayton,

                         I am writing to you as I would love to be the headteacher of Queenswell Junior school for a day.

 

It is my ambition to be a primary school teacher when I grow up. It would be amazing to have an idea of what it is like to work in such a job - with this opportunity, I can experience for myself what it is like to work in the teaching industry.

 

As far as my skills go, I have experience of leading from the extra - curricular performing art classes that I am currently undertaking. With confidence in speaking to others, I am certain I will be skilled in communicating to fellow members of staff, but also approachable in the role of a senior member of staff at QJS.

 

I enjoy my time at school and hope that all other students do too. To make sure of this, if I were the headteacher, I would make sure all lessons are fun, but educational and rewarding for both staff and students at the same time. I strongly believe that this would make classes more engaging and as a result, pupils would have a more positive attitude towards learning.

 

One of my top priorities as headteacher would be to make sure that everyone is wearing the correct school uniform because looking smart and ready for school gives the impression to both visitors and members of the public, that we are excited for a day of learning ahead.

 

Finally, I would make sure there are good biscuits in the staffroom - brightening the teachers' day and looking after them as they are a very important part of our school. The best school in Barnet.

 

Yours Sincerely,

Libby 6VH

 

 

 

Dear Mr Clayton,

                         I would like to apply for the role as headteacher for a day. I enjoy history and science and I am an excellent leader as I have two younger sisters who I always teach new things. I am also very good at communicating and can hold a conversation with anyone I meet.

 

I know how important your role is as headteacher, I am a fast learner and would love to have the opportunity to learn the small details of your role. therefore, I would very much appreciate to be chosen for an interview.

 

Yours Sincerely,

Sabrina 6DH

 

 

 

 

Dear Mr Clayton,

                         I am writing to inform you about the reasons why I am the most applicable choice for being headteacher for the day.

 

Firstly, I will give the children opportunities to be the best version of themselves and I will attempt to prevent any poor behaviour.

 

Secondly, I will give determination to the children who don't want to join in during playtime or breaktime because they are too scared.

 

I will make all of the children feel positive and make sure that Queenswell is the most fantastic school for them. It would be a wonderful experience for me to run as headteacher for a day.

 

Yours Sincerely,

Erik 6EO
