    I am in year 11 and my school has restructured the work experience so my year is not doing so I have decided to organize my own at my old primary school and I was wondering if this sounds okay:
    I am a year 11 pupil at Egglescliffe School and I am writing to you to enquire about the possibility of a work experience placement hen I have finished my GCSE exams. As I am interested in working with children n the future, I would like to gain experience in this area and I would love the opportunity to do this at Preston Primary School as I completed my primary education there and I have fond memories of the school. A CV and a reference can be provided if you require one. Thank you for taking the time to read my letter and I look forward to hearing from you.
    Thank you and I hope it is okay if its not please can you tell me how to improve it thank you.

    Rather than waiting for people to come to you, go to them. Tap up your local primary schools and see if it would be feasible. The only thing that might make it a bit hard is that most educational establishments require a CRB check. However, there may be exceptions that allow this to be waived if it were only for a week or so.

    Good luck!
