Teaching Assistant Support in the Classroom

All staff are made fully aware of pupils who have any kind of individual need, via SENCO, SEN register and Individual Education Plans.Pupils with Statements for any physical disabilities will be given teaching assistant support as appropriate, especially where there are health and safety issues. All pupils with Statements those at School Action Plus and School Action are given in class Teaching Assistant time as per SEN funding allows.

Differentiated work is provided in subjects by the subject teacher where appropriate, enabling all pupils to have equal access to the curriculum. Teaching Assistants are encouraged to be involved in this.

All Year 7 pupils have teaching assistant support in English, History, Geography, PHSCE and the bottom sets for Maths and Science.

This support not only eases the transition of pupils from Primary school but also enables staff to monitor and identify any pupils who may need further support.
