Taking Risks with the Teacher

Description

John Bayley visits a teacher and two TAs to give them practical advice on how to provide effective support to one another in the classroom.

At Bishop Stopford's School in Enfield, recently qualified RE teacher Flora Hoori and her team have difficulties controlling form 9B3's behaviour. They are often noisy and unfocused and, despite having two teaching assistants in the classroom to offer support, the team is currently finding the going tough.

TAs Sharon Collins and Vuyisa Henry are mainly allocated to SEN pupils. Bayley believes teacher Flora could be making greater use of the talents of her support staff in managing the class and allowing her the space to teach more effectively. Bayley talks to the team about the power of praise, and including a wider range of activities catering more closely to the needs of the students, and the team put his advice into practice.
