Statement of Purpose Header?

Can someone tell me if I should put a header on the SoP and page numbers? If so, which positioning and format is recommended?

For example:

School Name | Dept. | Statement of Purpose | Full Name

with a "Page X of Y" in the footer.

    You should be sure to include your name on every page you submit in case there's somehow a mix up in files once they're printed out.

    As for format, do whatever you want. I usually just put my name and date of submission at the top with the page number at the bottom.
