Effective deployment of teaching assistants - a good practice guide
has been developed in order to provide school
leaders, teachers and teaching assistants, with a useful starting
point to consider the best use of TAs in relation to the pupils and
teachers they support, their role, its effectiveness and their
impact on pupil learning.
Headteachers, senior leaders, teachers and TAs can use these
resources as a guide to:
- clarification of TA role
- identifying the best way to lead and manage TAs strategically
and on a daily basis
- training and support
Although the document has been developed in the first instance
for use in primary schools, with some adaptation it can be also be
used in both special and high school settings.
