Hi there - have ongoing issues here. We are a one form entry school and in reception I have 5+ people scheduled during the week on a kind of rota system to provide my nursery nurse/t.a equivalent. Only 2 of these are early years trained in any way and the coming and going on some days leaves me dizzy (e.g. I have 5 different people in 1 day!). Also, if there is an incident anywhere else in the school e.g. first aid required or a child having a tantrum these people get called out leaving me with no support. Am I being negative or is this realistically difficult to manage in terms of planning activities for support staff to do with children if they are coming and going all the time? Any thoughts really, really appreciated. As a smallish primary I'd also be interested to know how many teaching assistants you have in your schools?
