Role & Deployment of Teaching Assistants

The teaching and learning requirements of all children with SEND is primarily the responsibility of the class teacher with support from their curriculum area. This reflects the principle that SEND is a whole Academy issue and a recognised aspect of all curriculum planning. All staff at Red House Academy are expected to teach students with SEND.

Teaching assistants are integral to the successful learning of all children. They are highly skilled and are recognised as playing an important role in the school. Teaching Assistants support the class or subject teacher to meet the needs of individuals or groups of pupils with special needs.
