Working with our TAs

Our Teaching Assistants are integral to the overall effectiveness of teaching and learning at Fred Longworth. This year they will all undertake their own Action Research Project in order to enhance their skills, reflect upon current practice and develop pedagogy. TAs are invited and encouraged to attend all whole school training events as well as take part in specific team training and development sessions throughout the year.

Training and development has included:

  • How to be an effective TA team
  • Improving Numeracy and Literacy skills
  • Moving the whole school forward TOGETHER (focussing upon whole school priorities)
  • Working with students who have ADHD
  • Restorative approaches and dealing with challenging behaviour
  • Emotional Health and Well Being
  • Helping children to build resilience
