Changes to Teaching Assistant Provision

Schools will be employing and deploying Teaching Assistants for pupils with Additional Learning Needs under new arrangements agreed last week.

Following a detailed review, Conwy’s Cabinet Members agreed that a Cluster Delivery Model should be rolled-out across the county.

Under this arrangement, all funding for teaching assistants will be delegated to schools, and clusters of schools will be encouraged to work together and pool their funding.

Cllr Garffild Lewis, Conwy’s Cabinet Member for Education and Skills said,

“We been working closely with staff, schools and families as part of this in-depth review, to make sure we can design and deliver a system that’s fair and sustainable, which meets the needs of pupils.

“I really believe this Cluster Delivery arrangement will support early intervention; evidence-based good practice and consistency.”

“We’ll be writing to our Teaching Assistants and to parents in due course, and we’ll also be arranging some drop-in sessions for everyone involved or affected by changes to find out more.”

It’s hoped to complete the roll-out by spring 2020.
