Support Staff anonymity

Discussion in 'Teaching assistants' started by Rosiejasper, May 10, 2011.

  1. I went to a GMB meeting at our school yesterday for TA's and found something out that I think is absolutely, unbelievable....

    ' Michael Gove is giving teachers more protection from false allegations. The media won't be allowed to name a teacher accused of misconduct toward a pupil unless or until the teacher is actually charged with a criminal offence. Support staff won't be covered by this right to anonymity.'

    What do you think?
  2. I think I'm as outraged as you,after all when a child 'kicks off' it's the T/A that deals with them (most of the time).If anyone is at risk it's us after all a challenging child can say anything.
