Abstract

This report presents findings from a study that followed on from a large-scale survey of teaching assistants’ (TAs) experiences of working during Covid. The study aimed to document the role of TAs during the so-called ‘recovery’ year (2021/22), and to identify
examples of what good schools do to recognise, value, incentivise and ultimately retain their TAs. We obtained data from 22 semi-structured interviews with TAs, teachers and headteachers from five primary schools in England.
