As a teacher who has taught in this area for many years I can confidently say that the professionalism and dedication of theTAs in this school is comparable to none. They are the first link with home and know the children in their care like the back of their hand. The school and community will be a much poorer place if these valued members of staff are let go.

Teaching Assistant's are vital in every classroom. They play a key role in ensuring that pupils are engaged, on task and getting the maximum benefits from their lessons or activities. They support the Teacher in so many ways including, assessing children, planning next steps and tailored support, preparing resources, managing behaviour, administering first aid and changing children. Every TA I've ever worked with has gone above and beyond their paid duties to ensure that the classroom is a safe, secure and welcoming environment which is run effectively, enabling children to achieve their full potential.
