Started the year with 30 pupils, two won places on appeal during September and now a third will be joining us after Christmas. Anyone else in a similar situation? I always thought 30 was maximum for KS1 but have been told that these is such a shortage in our LA that this no longer applies! Have lost my role play area to make room, can barely move from one end of the room to the other and now have 33 EVERYTHING to mark, assess, APP, report on etc. To top it off my TA spent most of the day yesterday labelling books, folders, assessment records, pegs, trays, birthday display, etc etc only to find out today that the name we had been given was actually his middle name so now have to do it ALL again (although am considering just calling him the name we were given!) OK moan over, feeling better and sure we will be fine!
