The Excitement Of A Learning Support Teacher

July 21, 2022

It’s days like today when it’s like an inferno outside that I’m thankful for working in a stately home. The marble, the wooden floors and massive rooms make it a lovely temperate place to work.

Of course this isn’t so in the winter where I will no doubt shiver my way through it as I did last year. Our part of the stately home is at the back in the less glorious rooms near the archway where the coaches and carriages would come round the back.

It was lovely to catch up with my pupils, many of whom I’ve not really seen for a few weeks due to the GCSE exams that LS help to support to provide access arrangements.

One pupil shared they had achieved a 6 in their history exam which was a huge step forward from the shy pupil I met in September who wouldn’t even write a sentence. I supported him in his exam and will admit to getting a little over excited when I saw the 2 sides of A4 that he produced. He thought that quite funny.

Only 3 more weeks to go until we break up and it’s so wonderful to look back with pupils over the year and see all that they’ve achieved.
