A child in my Year 1 class (age 6) soils daily. This has been going on since she started school. At the beginning of this academic year her parents decided to put her in pull-ups. Parents report that she has seen a doctor but the school has received no feedback or evidence of this. My TA has to clean and change her daily (often twice a day). Understandably, she is beginning to resent this. I am also finding that it is impacting negatively on the quality of teaching in my class (we are mixed age - Reception/Year 1) and my TA often takes a full half-hour to clean and change her properly. My TA is frustrated that the matter has been unresolved and, in the hope to move the issue into the forefront, has spoken to the Head about 'refusing' to change the child. My TA wants action to be taken by the school to get the parents moving on the issue. She feels that if she continues to change the child the problem will go on unresolved and the child will suffer. Has anyone elso found themselves in a similar situation? What advice, if any, is there for Teaching Assistants regarding refusing to continue to deal with this? I must stress that these are not one-off soiling incidents that we all expect from time-to-time when working with young children.
