A new addition to the popular Outstanding Teaching series. A helpful and concise handbook of creative ideas and advice for teaching assistants to help them give the best support they can and make the most of their role in the primary classroom.
Emma Davie has been a teaching assistant for 17 years and has worked across all of the primary age ranges, supporting children with a variety of additional needs. At present she works with Year 6 pupils, teaching small groups of children with a range of special educational needs, including autism, dyslexia, dyspraxia, speech and language difficulties and English as an additional language.
This is an incredibly useful guide for both new and more
experienced teaching assistants. Emma's personal experience in the
classroom shines through and the book highlights just how valuable
an outstanding teaching assistant is to any school. * Jenna Lucas,

This is a brilliant book and will not only support those embarking on a career as a teaching assistant but also those already in the profession. Written from a wealth of experience, it will enable effective partnerships between teacher and TA to be developed in order to have the greatest impact upon the children. * Rachel Orr, Education Consultant, Teacher and Tutor, @RachelOrr *
An excellent book which covers all the basics TAs need, and which will give them a good grounding to start a successful career as a TA. * Parents in Touch *
