It's abit of both to be honest. I am a TA so interested but am looking at if from a parent point of view. From what I know the school are looking at making the TA level 4, who has worked in the Nursery for 9 years to Nursery "teacher" including planning, observations and assessment. She will be over seen by the co-ordinator who will be in the Reception class. This is not a short term thing tho, they are talking year on year. There will be no more than 26 children at any given time, and there will be a TA level 3 and a TA level 1 in the class as well. Thank you for the info. Shelley.x.
