You will also be expected to promote and encourage independence and personal development in our pupils whilst maintaining high expectations of behaviour at all times.

Ultimately we are looking for our TA’s to contribute to providing high quality, challenging and differentiated educational activities and experiences for our pupils and to promote their cognitive, social, emotional, behavioural, physical development and spiritual well-being through the whole curriculum and extra-curricular activities.
