Unit 9 1.1 Teachers are primarily responsible for following and delivering the national curriculum, lesson planning and providing the necessary resources for the children; they also develop and adapt learning activities to meet the needs of each group of children who will need them.

A teacher’s responsibility also involves; Maintaining an ongoing record of each child’s progress. Identifying the individual educational needs of all children. Keeping children informed about their individual performances and achievements. Keeping parents up to date, so as to identify their child’s strengths and areas for development.

Teachers should discuss with the TA, what activities will be taking place, in order for the TA not only to prepare and organise resources, but also to have a clear understanding of the LO for each class, and to know what they should be doing in order to help each child achieve this.
