Hi, I am an NQT currently doing supply work in a Reception class. I started after Christmas and will be staying until half term. All is going well and I am enjoying it and the children seem to be responding well to me on the whole. However, one parent spoke to the TA yesterday afternoon to say that her girl isn’t wanting to come into school at the moment and has said she wants to move to another key worker group to be with that TA (we have 3 key worker groups and she is in mine). I have had no problems with this girl – she is always doing the right thing and is a delight to have in the class so I praise her regularly. The TA is surprised that she feels like this because she said she’s seen no change in her behaviour. Is it just normal for children of this age to miss their class teacher or is there something I could be doing wrong? The TA’s both were surprised in the first week how well the children responded to me but think that now that the class teacher hasn’t come back, it is beginning to affect them more (there have been other minor examples from children that are apparently particularly attached to the class teacher). Perhaps I naively would have expected it to work the other way around? I just want to make sure I am doing the best for the children and perhaps I am expecting too much for them to be fully secure with me when I have only been there for a couple of weeks. Any thoughts appreciated!
