    i do luch cover by choice.It is a seperate roll with seperate pay and contract,as is the same with most LAs. I would be surprised if it is in your TA contract that you need to cover lunch times. Good luck.it sounds like anothercase of a TA being put uponand taken for granted!!
  2. Thanks Legoearth! I am sure you are right. Have spent ages reading through my contract and job description and of course, lunchtime duties are not mentioned. I am sticking to my guns on this, although I know the manipulation will start in other ways now I am confident about this point!

  3. We have lunch time cover included in our contracts for 45 mins each day - although I do work in a special needs school, so the extra cover is needed for feeding and changing the children.
  4. Thanks Callyfly: Would I be right, therefore, in assuming that if it is included in your TA contract, you earn TA pay for this 45 mins?
  5. We have different contracts and rates of pay for the different roles we do.
