If you are happy to wait a couple of weeks, then no problem.

Hi Miriam,

Would it be possible for you to conduct a post-mortem of my application form? I know you're inundated at the moment, and I don't mind waiting- reallu really appreciate this offer considering unis don't provide any feedback (even if I am too late in asking!) Please let me know.

Thanks,

Sure, PM me for details. I've got a report due tomorrow, but I think only 10 more ahead of you at the moment.

I'm getting there. 27 done, 8 left in the queue.

It has taken an extraordinary amount of time, but with the pre-application feedback and professional development day, I think I've raised just over £1000 for the school's next interactive whiteboard.

I should say I did check with them that with the covid lockdown they didn't want any equipment for remote teaching, or to allow deprived pupils internet access or other learning resources whilst schools are scaled down and most learning is happening in the home, but they said that (unless I can rustle up a new minibus) the whiteboard is still a priority, as they will need it when things return to normal, and it will be a "lasting legacy for the school" that means they will be able to afford to replace future kit as it breaks down without the huge challenge of raising funds for three interactive screens at the same time.

I haven't got a form for you to review, but I'd like to donate a bit towards the whiteboard. I have some unexpected extra money this month! Does it have a fundraising page?

That's really kind of you Lingua. However, I'm just collecting the funds together and then donating it to the school's charitable funds after a conversation with the assistant head teacher. But it felt like I chose my charity last October (and even this February) in a whole different era to that which we are in now! Why don't you donate your spare cash to either the Trussell trust, Shelter, UNHCR or the Unicef Yemen famine fund? That's where I've sent my spare funds. All of those seem more pressing at the moment than a new whiteboard that will be used when some kids return to a rural primary school in a mainly white area with a relatively low rate of socioeconomic deprivation - if you aren't getting the service of having your clinical form reviewed.

Hi Miriam,

Hope you are keeping well. I appreciate you have had many applications to look over, just wondering if you are still accepting these? I would be grateful for any feedback

36 down, 5 to go. I'm up to those emailed to me on 22nd April now.

I'm going to stop doing these now, unless I've already agreed to. Peanut, send me a PM, you can be the last person. I think 40 is enough for this year, and I want to focus on delivering some webinars during the lockdown that can have a wider reach.

39 done, 3 to go, and I've caught up to those emailed over in the last couple of days. I think my fundraising for the school is now well on the way to our target of purchasing a second interactive whiteboard (I'll have to go back and check the exact figures, but my quick calculations suggest we are at about £1500 of the target £2500, so perhaps I should do one more fundraising event of some kind).

Thanks also to those emailing me to say that my feedback from last year helped them to secure interviews this year. It is always lovely to hear that my comments make a positive difference, particularly as I am not always giving news that people want to hear!

Just to confirm that I have completed reviews on all forms sent to me. So let me know if you have donated but haven't yet had a reply. Otherwise that's it until October.
