    I have just started the role of SENCO in my mainstream primary school. We do not have any TAs or support staff in any of the KS2 classes, and have one TA per class in EYFS/ KS1. As most classes have 30 children, the class teachers are really struggling to find the time to do effective interventions with the pupils with SEND. Does anyone else have this problem? And if so, how do you organise interventions?

    This was discussed inset today. We have huge lists of special considerations that help individual SEND children. We do not have the time or the resources to do it.

    Realistically, it is just not going to happen. Schools are under funded. If no one is able to fit a task into their reasonable working hours, it is not going to get done.

    We have agreed that we would take in one consideration for each SEND child in our planning. One only. And if there are 44 children with EHCPs in the class, then one specific consideration could cover two, three, or even all 4 of them.

    Pragmatically, that is what is on offer.

    Que parents up in arms insisting J is entitled to X, we re legally obliged to provide Y.... the reality is, the funding isn't there, the resources isn't these, and the staff do no have the time
