Support Staff

Across the school our support staff work in a number of classes to support individuals, groups and whole classes. Support staff cover teachers PPA (planning, preparation and assessment time, 10% of teaching time per week) and Leadership time. Specific roles of support staff are reviewed regularly and adapted to meet the needs of learners, this can happen mid term. Some LSAs have also undertaken specific training for interventions.
