I have recently taken over a class as a job share and am finding it really difficult as I have a child in my class who cannot read at all. I have a classroom assistant however I only have her limted time a week and during this time I have 8 children who have to be taken to do the 5 minute box and various other support resources. This means the child needs my constant support and attention as they cannot be left to do any sort of task as they cannot read a thing. The child needs every word read to them which means I do not have time to work with other groups as fully as I would like. I have spoken to the head teacher and have been told that there are so many children in the school with needs that the child cannot have individual support. Also I have 11 children in my class on various support plans which I feel I cannot fulfil due to the lack of support I have. I know I no means have the worst case senario as I have heard of people with several children who cannot read or write in their classrooms, however this is my first year out of probation and my job share too so I am struggling. Advise would be great !! I have a primary 5 class btw.
