“The EEF is delighted to have been able to work with Partners in Learning and Doncaster schools on the ‘Making best use of Teaching Assistants’ project. The way the evidence has been brought ‘to life’ by bringing in expertise on school improvement, and drawing on local school examples, has been fantastic. Thank you to all the schools for the energy and commitment they have brought to the project. We look forward to working together on future collaborations".
