We have a large team of Teaching Assistants who provide support to staff, to individual pupils and to learning groups across the school. Many of them have taken additional qualifications to enhance their skills and talents. Some are assigned to children whose educational, social or physical needs require one to one support, thus promoting an inclusive education for all pupils. As well as direct classroom support, TA's carry out a multitude of other duties essential to the smooth running of a large school.
Mrs Janet Joffe
The first ‘port-of-call’ for visitors and parents is the school office where our business management team provide a warm welcome and answer queries. Frances, our School Business Manager, is ably supported by Ruth, Sarah and Helen. They have responsibility for all administrative procedures relating to pupils, finance, assessment, attendance etc.
School meals are prepared daily in the school kitchen by Lisa, Lyn & Debbie. The emphasis is very much on healthy menus, with plenty of fresh fruit and vegetables, supplementing the nutritionally balanced and varied main courses. A computer is used for up-to-date administration of meals and ‘dinner money’.
Meal Time Assistants
Our team of Meal Time Assistants, led by Sharon, help children in the dining hall and supervise them during lunchtime play. They help ensure that lunchtime is a pleasurable experience.
