I am 27 weeks pregnant and my new Reception class is beyond challenging! Currently just myself (class teacher) and a full time TA. 2 children are due to have an EHCP but their paperwork hasn’t gone through yet so school won’t employ anyone for them. One of them is autistic and cannot sit for any length of time, so needs a constant eye kept on her. She is also in pull ups so needs changing in the day. The other has severe social anxiety and will not eat, drink, toilet or speak at school. Then there is another child who has violent outbursts; so far as kicked, punched and pulled the hair of staff. We are in an open plan two form entry school so I can call on support from the other class teacher (also eyfs manager) and TA. So far the violent child hasn’t hurt me but we’ve only done 2 full days - and I think it’s only a matter of time, even though I am trying to keep my distance from him. We have been told a 1:1 support for the EHCP won’t come until after I’ve gone on maternity leave. I don’t know if I can cope with another 3 months of this before my maternity leave starts! Any advice would kindly be received!
