15 Ipswich Opportunity Area schools have appointed a Remote Learning Support Assistants (RSLAs) to place in schools across Ipswich for the current academic year.
RLSAs support young people with remote learning at the point they self-isolate individually or as part of an infection cluster due to Covid 19, or with targeted young people where year group bubbles switch to remote learning. From January 2021 RLSAs are supporting all pupils working remotely.
RLSAs work on the school site, helping young people, mainly online or by phone, to engage with the work sent home and promoting their independent learning. Families may also need support to get their children online where schoolwork is computer based.
All RLSAs recruited by the Opportunity Area work predominantly in one school or trust in Ipswich, but are part of a supportive network of teaching assistants that may support other Ipswich schools that experience a spike in infections.
Remote Learning Support Assistants are based at:
St Margaret’s, St John’s and St Matthew’s Primary Schools
Springfield Junior School
The Beeches Primary
Dale Hall & Castle Hill Primary Schools
The Oaks Primary
