I work within an F2 class and in September I have a child starting in my class who is diabetic. I am the teaching assistant within the class and I will be responsible for checking the child's bloods and giving him injections. My headteacher has not approached me to ask if I am comfortable in doing this and also he has not asked me if i am prepared to do it either. The only training i will receive is the day before the child starts. The whole situation makes me nervous but what annoys me the most is that the headmaster has not said a word to me about the whole thing. Also i have another child in September who suffers with bad eczema and requires cream to be applied twice a day. I have not been offered any support at all. With working in F2 we are unsure of the needs the children will have until they actually start in September, so I could have more children within the class who have additional needs. The inclusion manager within the school has stated that there should be an additional member of staff employed to help with the additional needs of the children within the class but the head has dismissed her recommendations.
