Cross Phase > Supporters in Schools

Supporters in Schools

In recent years LEAs have invested considerably in the provision and training of Learning Support Assistants (LSAs) and volunteers to deliver extra basic skills support to pupils who need it. To help assist LSAs and volunteers, this new section of the website identifies examples of good practice, and provides other resources and advice to help these ‘Supporters in Schools'. Over the coming months the section will grow to incorporate guidelines, advice, resources, and signposts to other useful training programmes for literacy and numeracy on the internet.


Information on Volunteer Supporters
Volunteer Supporters include parents, Governors or other members of the local community. They are not employed by the School Governors but can be deployed by the Headteacher to help deliver the school's Learning Support Programme drawn up by the Learning Support/Basic Skills Co-ordinator.

Information on Learning Support Assistants
This policy is in keeping with the school's aims, its teaching and learning policies, and its policy on equal opportunity. The school is committed to a policy of inclusion: one in which the teaching, learning, achievements, attitudes and well-being of all children matter. The management and deployment of the school's resources are designed to ensure all children's needs are met. The school seeks to ensure the provision of additional learning support, as well as effective teaching strategies across the curriculum, in order to enable pupils identified as struggling with skills reach their potential.
