Teaching Assistants and Coaches

The work of teaching assistants enriches the provision available across the school. Each learning assistant and coach, within each school, has a responsibility to fulfil the ALN and Inclusion needs of pupils. To do this effectively, it is necessary to:

  • Follow the lead of the class teacher to fulfil pupils’ needs.
  • Be aware of targeting pupils in class with ALN and Inclusion.
  • Be aware of the pupil’s holistic development, for instance by being aware of the One Page Profile and contribute when appropriate.
  • Consider pupils’ needs when carrying out group work or focus tasks.
