Looking for an effective intervention to improve writing, which relies upon a more robust partnership approach between teacher and TA and between TA and pupils?
Write Away Together is a Fischer Family Trust guided-writing intervention programme, focused on feedback and improvement. It can be applicable to all pupils, or used as a one-to-one intervention, targeting pupils who need more intense structured support.
One of the top seven strategies identified by the Sutton Trust, to raise attainment of disadvantaged and vulnerable learners, includes a focus on the pupil’s ability to self-manage their own learning. A key feature of the intervention focuses on how to change pupils’ writing behaviour so that the skills of proof-reading and editing become increasingly embedded.
The course is intended for a TA to attend, along with their SENCO or lead teacher. A range of practical activities will be explored, which can be used with pupils across the primary phase.
