Support Staff

At Shirley Heath we are proud to have a dedicated team of Teaching Assistants and Special Support Assistants who support teachers and help children with their educational and social development, both in and out of the classroom.

Our Teaching Assistants are also trained to deliver specific Numeracy and Literacy intervention programmes for children who require that additional support in achieving their given targets.

Many of our Assistants also work as Play leaders during lunchtimes delivering team based games which develop both their pupils' and their ability to work as a team, making lunchtimes enjoyable.
