About the Webinar

This webinar will provide Teaching Assistants with practical advice and guidance around how they can work with teachers to help better support low attaining pupils.

TAs often find themselves working individually with children who are under-performing or with SEND. It’s important that these children receive brief, but intensive, structured interventions and that they aren’t distanced from classroom learning. This means TAs need a close working relationship with teachers.

In this webinar we will explore how TAs can look to add value through a more direct instructional role, how they can support the needs of the pupils first and foremost and how they can develop a relationship with teachers which ensure low attaining pupils receive the highest level of support.

Learning Outcomes

  • Understand how you can focus more on delivering value-added interventions to help the development of those pupils most in need

  • Explore key points around undertaking a more instructional role and the importance of supplementing teacher expertise

  • Recognise how a complimentary partnership with teachers can successfully improve pupil outcomes

  • Identify how you can support teachers in dedicating more of their time to low attaining pupils and children with SEND to help support their learning

  • Recognising the importance of understanding lesson content, objectives, expectations and excellence in order to provide effective support
