Should a TA ever be left with a group of children on their first day?

Discussion in 'Teaching assistants' started by happyphantom, May 29, 2011.

  1. Is it acceptable to be left with 25 children, for 2 hours, on your own, on your first ever day as a TA?
    This is in a challenging secondary school, with badly behaved children.
    Please tell me if this is common, or even legal.
  2. This is totally unacceptable...very bad practice, TA's are not covered, if there is an incident. You need to see your line manager. TA's can only be alone for emergency cover (level 3 only) & work has to be set.
