Maintain effective adult:child ratio in mixed age classes Effective use of TA time and expertise is paramount to raising standards in our mixed age classes (R, 1 & 2 and 3, 4, 5 & 6) TAs are well trained and experienced in both Literacy and Numeracy as well as areas of SEN. Such deployment allows split groups to be taught by the class teacher and targeted learning to be maximised. Teachers’ planning to detail how TAs will be deployed and to include references to effective questioning and assessment opportunities. SLT will use this when observing lessons.

Progress will be tracked through work in books, pupil progress meetings each half-term and discussions with both TA and teachers.

Improved levels of attainment in Maths for PPG pupils

 

TA to implement Power of 2 maths programme. Previous use of the programme has yielded rapid progress and as it is a coaching system it can be delivered as little or as many times in a week as practicable. The step by step approach, fills gaps in a child’s knowledge. During this process they gain confidence and knowledge, allowing them to access the topic that they’d had problems with. The books are ideal for individual, structured support and enable TAs to set targets, evidence progress, diagnose areas of concern and plan one-to-one time. All areas of the mental maths curriculum are covered and they are ideal to build confidence and attainment. Sessions are run by TAs who have used the programme effectively in the past.

Progress is evaluated at pupil progress meetings each half-term and through discussions with TA and teacher.
