The Role

* Create, play and teach games to pupils to develop their social skills or further learning.
* Create amazing displays which support teaching and create an exceptional learning environment.
* Celebrate success.
* Participate in therapeutic training sessions or reflecting on difficult periods

TAs are highly valued members of our team.
The school want TAs to be part of the decision making that drives our school, provides outcomes for children and advocates for every child. We welcome their input in developing both the academic curriculum and the opportunities in our extra-curricular offer - bringing their own interests and passions to the table.
