Cover for class during the Year 1 Phonics Screening

Discussion in 'Primary' started by impulce, Jun 11, 2012.

  1. How are otheres managing cover for the Year 1 classes during the time it takes teachers to do the 1:1 phonics screening?
    I've just become grumpy about it all over again. I don't teach Y1 but we currently have TAs off for various reasons and have had to move TA support accordingly. It has left the Y1 classes without support temporarily (which is fine, they're small classes with low levels of SEN) but we are meant to be delivering the phonics screening tests next week.
    It's made me cross that we are likely going to have to either pay out for supply cover or use TA support that is desperately needed elsewhere (eg SEN Support) just to do a flippin' check that wont tell us anything new anyway.
    I thought perhaps there was funding as part of it for supply cover, but no.
