Teaching Assistants take on general learning support roles in all parts of the school. Some are employed specifically to support individual children with statements of Special Educational Needs. We have a very able team of TAs, many of whom take small groups for dedicated consolidation of maths and English skills.  TAs receive training and attend regular meetings to discuss common issues.  Our Higher Level Teaching Assistants also cover lessons, to release teacher colleagues for a range of leadership, planning and assessment activities.
