Top TA Tips For Additional Support

Do people ever tell you that they can’t read your handwriting?  If this is the case, the likelihood is an examiner won’t be able to read it either!  Take active steps to improve your handwriting by doing the following:

  • Download and use this excellent resource (produced by the National Adult Literacy Agency via The Guardian – Teacher Network) which will help improve your handwriting.  It includes warm-up exercises to limber up your hands, a wide variety of tasks to get you back into the habit of writing clearly and a troubleshooting section offering solutions for common problems. 

  • Attend our handwriting drop-in clinics run by our lead TAs in handwriting (Mrs Horton) in GM01:

KS3 – Every Thursday –  0815 – 0830

KS4 – Every Friday        –  0815 – 0830

  • Spelling interventions are also run by our lead TA in spelling (Mrs Fowler).  Students are currently selected to attend by the English department.
