Unlocking the potential of TAs 

In the most recent edition of Teach Primary magazine, you’ll fine a new article by Rob Webster and Peter Blatchford – Unlocking the potential of TAs. Webster and Blatchford note the change in TA circumstances since last year, when the media reported job cuts, to a more positive outlook in recent months. The article details the Education Endowment Foundation funded project, which provided evidence that TAs improve children’s academic results.

The article emphasises the need to rethink the deployment/preparedness of TAs and how various strategies can get the best out of them.
