I work in a secondary school with PD students who require support throughout the day with their writing and handling of resources and equipment. Some need me to scribe, some need a person to hold a ruler while they use it. We have provided all students with their own box of resources, it is where they keep their exercise books and nobody is to share these items or touch them. Within twenty minutes of the first lesson I was sitting next to the child I support, I was asked to scribe for the student and was therefore touching the exercise books they would also use. Quite simply it isn't possible to keep a 2 metre or a 1 metre plus distance, or to avoid touching resources. I could wear a mask or visor but this would impact on communication between myself and the student. I spend all day with the same student in the same room with the same children, teachers come and go. we sanitise our hands when we enter and leave the room, I'm able to wash my hands at lunch time and the end of the day as well. Do I feel safe? Not really, but what can I do, refuse to be so close, refuse to scribe, etc? It is part of my role and I am there for the student I work with. What are other LSA's doing? Are you staying at a distance? Do you wear a face mask or visor in the classroom?
