A Pupil Support Assistant (PSA) works closely with teachers in the classroom and their role is to encourage children and young people with learning activities.  The PSA may support your child 1:1 for some of the time, or support your child in small groups.  If your child has a high level of need a PSA may support them throughout the school day.  The PSA will try to encourage your child to interact with the teacher and other children as much as possible.
