They work closely with class teachers to understand the learning that the children need to achieve and are responsible for working with individual pupils or groups to enable them to make excellent progress.

• Assess and record children’s attainment and progress.
• Lead small group sessions and interventions according to teacher’s planning.
• Promote the general progress and well-being of pupils in your class/group.
• Maintain high standards of behaviour among pupils through the use of the school’s behaviour policy.
• Participate in administrative and organisational tasks relating to the duties above.
• Supervise pupils during playtimes.
• Participate in Performance Management activities and also further training and professional development sessions as they arise.
• Demonstrate a good standard of written and spoken English and a good subject knowledge of Mathematics
