Just some advice really...I have a friend who is a TA in a different school to me. She wants my advice cos I'm SLT in a primary school but I have no idea whether she can do anything. Thr situation is this...my friend found out she was pregnant in the summer term after many years of trying. She was a TA in year 6. However when she was 3 months pregnant she had to be put on bed rest. She lost the baby at 6 months which was obviously hugely devastating. She then was signed off for 6 weeks after the miscarriage. She wants to return to work and has been told that she is to work in the nursery which is in a building away from thr main school and so will have little contact with those who may support her. She has spoken to the head...he said there is only a job in nursery (someone left recently and they have decided not to have any TAs in Year 5/6) so tough. Is there anything she can do?! Or is it just tough? I appreciate the head is thinking about the needs of thr business but I don't think he realises how hard it will be for her to be changing nappies/liasing with pregnant mums all thr time when she was previously a upper key stage 2 TA.
