In my job role, I work closely with the class teacher and full time teaching assistant. Each member of the team know and understand their own role in school, they should also know and understand the roles of others in their team and how they fit together to support the pupils. Good communication skills amongst one another are essential to enable us to provide the highest quality of learning and support to the pupils in the classes where I volunteer. In our team, we offer support to one another and discuss the developments and achievements of the individual pupils. We share information and contribute ideas for future

There are many reasons for conducting classroom assessments – assigning grades is an obvious one. Effective assessment allows teachers to monitor students progress toward achieving learning targets, determine whether instruction is effective, detect students strengths and weaknesses, diagnose learning problems, provide feedback, motivate and engage students, and prepare them for high-stakes tests (McMillan, 2011). Effective assessment therefore enhances teaching and learning as well as allows a means for providing information on student achievement and learning needs (McMillan, 2011). What assessment provides immediate information about how students are progressing in their learning and where they are having difficulties? Formative assessment, or assessment for learning, enhances student learning and achievement and helps teachers improve instruction (Wiliam, 2005).

Area/subject of personal statement: Knowledge of how schools are organised in terms of roles and responsibilities Describe roles and responsibilities of: School governors Governors have a key role in decision-making and are expected to prepare for and attend meetings of the governing body and any committees of which they are a member. As well as supporting the school, governors need to ask challenging questions to be sure that the school is providing the best possible education. This role is often called ‘being a critical friend’. The governing body's main role is to help raise standards of achievement. It: • Is accountable for the performance of the school to parents and the wider community, • Plans the school's future direction, • Selects the head teacher, • Makes decisions on the school's budget and staffing, • Makes sure the national curriculum is taught, • Decides how the school can encourage pupil's spiritual, moral and social development , • Makes sure the school provides for all its pupils, including those with special needs, • Reviews pupil exclusions and deals with any cases of staff dismissal appeals.
For example I find it essential to discuss the day’s lesson plan and targets with my class teacher. This gives me clear guidance and an objective when working with pupils, of what support I need to give in order to achieve the day’s targets. In the school environment, I am aware that I am acting as a role model to the children. How I communicate with colleagues, parents and pupils will reflect on how children will then communicate. It is important to adapt the way I communicate, because different audiences require different communication styles so that I can be understood easily.
Review what your role, responsibilities and boundaries as a teacher would be in terms of the teaching/training cycle. Identifying needs When planning sessions for learners it is vital that we consider each individual learners needs and the needs of the organisation. As Petty states ‘ each learner is unique and has individual needs. If the needs of our learners are discovered and met, the chances of success are greatly increased.’ (Petty 2004: 496) In addition to this it is vital that teachers know the relevant member of staff to refer students to, and what policies and procedures the organisation has in place. This will aid the teacher in acquiring the right support for learners within their education.
TDA 3.2 School as Organisations Unit 2.1 Explain the strategic purposes of members of the school team It is important and helpful to understand how schools are organised in terms of the different roles and responsibility that members of the school team have. MEMBERS | DESCRIPTION/PURPOSE | School governors | Usually a team of 10-12 people or more who provide strategic leadership and accountability in schools. The team must have at least one parent governor and one staff governor in addition to the Head Teacher. There are also appointed Local Authority and Community governors within this team. Their many responsibilities include: * Setting aims and objectives for the school * Setting targets and managing policies * Finance management * Monitor and evaluate the school’s progress and adopt new ways to improve its performance * Work closely with the local community * Work closely with the Head and senior management team * Appoint staff, including Head and Deputy Head Teachers * Attend meetings to discuss personnel issues, community cohesion, the school site etc.
The main responsibility of the teacher is to continually reassess development and changes during the course and create a seamless transition to ensure smooth delivery. As students develop better understanding of aims and objectives their needs change and this must be reflected in continual reassessment. It is the teacher’s responsibility to monitor, evaluate and improve the quality and effectiveness of their delivery by taking into account learners changing needs.
Trained teachers will automatically know the types of measures to use incase a student exhibits a certain undesirable behavior. These measures will ensure that students behave in an appropriate manner and their performance is excellent. They will also make sure that the relationship and interaction between them and their students is healthy therefore building a favorable learning environment. They should be in a favorable condition to notice various problems that individual students go through, advice, keep close watch and offer valid solutions. For a school to be the best place to mould good behavior and emotions, it needs to have consistent rules and consequences in case an individual breaks them.
