Teaching Assistants

Teaching assistants might support across different year groups and phases for certain activities but are based primarily in one phase.  Most support staff work part time but we try to make sure that there is someone based in a particular year group at all times.

Some work with a range of children in the classroom and also run intervention groups.  Some are employed for specific or targeted support linked to an Education and Health Care Plan.
