I have been a TA for nearly 20 years, nearly all of it in upper KS2. I am currently working with a great Yr4 team, undertaking all the usual including PPA cover, but from next year I am having to join the Reception team. I work part-time as does another TA who is secondary trained and is being forced to go to Nursery! I never asked to work part-time but that was the job that was advertised 5 years ago. I have no Early Years experience and the thought of it fills me with complete dread and terror. I really am not an 'Early Years Person'!!!!! As with all schools the school is suffering from small budgetitis and I am beginning to feel as though I am being made to resign my post, in a very underhand way (constructive dismissal?) as the Head Teacher is fully aware of my point of view. Does anyone have any thoughts on this?
