I believe that it is an indispensable6    experience for young people to interact with a teacher who intends to support their needs and7    up keep their well-being whilst continuously striving to make a positive difference to their8    lives as they progress through education9    I believe I have a talent for working with children, furthermore I believe that playing an10    active role in aiding young people to develop and adapting the curriculum to their strengths11    and weaknesses is vital for a primary teacher and I trust that I obtain these qualities.12    Over the past year I have been very active in extracurricular activities offered by my school.

13    As part of the school’s mental health and health and wellbeing groups I have proved to be14    committed to maintaining the welfare of all pupils. This involved conducting questionnaires to15    pupils and parents regarding all aspects of their health then working closely with GIRFEC16    guidelines and Breathing Space Scotland to support pupils as well as staff with an array of17    self-help coping methods and a self-referral system to make private contact with outside18    sources including CAMHS and NHS 24. I am passionate about the vital role mental health should19    have within education and I believe that improving its links within our school has been20    greatly beneficial to pupils.21    I have also taken on the responsibility of becoming an ambassador of rights respecting schools22    where I work hard to develop pupil’s acceptance of difference and diversity and have worked to23    raise awareness of children’s rights.
