Role of Associate Staff at St John’s C.E. Primary School
Our associate staff have high expectations of all pupils, and use their knowledge and experience to enable all pupils to achieve the learning objective in lessons. Teachers plan lessons to make effective use of their associate staff colleagues, aiming to maximise learning opportunities and ensure their impact is significant in contributing to the learning and achievement during lessons.
Our associate staff are also involved in delivering Read Write Inc. which is a whole school phonics programme, used to improve phonic decoding skills, reading and spelling ages.
Associate staff also provide small group and one to one intervention sessions which are linked directly to the pupil’s SEND Provision Plan.
