Hello, I am employed as a secondary school LSA Level 2. I am the sole literacy support for KS4. The current expectations of me are as follows: Provide in-class support for Years 9-11 (six lessons happening at any one time). Running KS4 Literacy Intervention, via small groups, during tutor time and throughout the school day. I have received a list of students to work with and their available times from SENCO and SLT. Otherwise, I have conducted and marked preliminary reading tests, had to find locations to carry out interventions, decide at which level to pitch the intervention. I have sourced and the school purchase access to an online literacy programme and have recently found another one for spelling. For the small groups, I have had to find resources and cobble things together, having been told 'just do whatever for now'. I cannot work like this. Each student has a different area of need and these are not being addressed by simply finding printable online, just before a session. No answers regarding resources are forthcoming, so I have started creating my own '38 week booklet' for use next year, with the aim of having a start point and end goal, but I am under constant scrutiny as to how I am using my time! I am also being asked to report back on progress, so will have to run further tests next week. I also have students within the Literacy sessions, who want help with their English Literature, so I need to be able to flit between three different texts, should the all be studying different things. Again, I need to have some differentiated resources, which I need to source, as there are none forthcoming from teaching staff. I am also asked to fill in for absent colleagues, lower down the school and I am pulled in to invigilate exams a lot, as I work with KS4, so this somehow 'frees' me up. When I get spare time (!), I am to be creating differentiated resources for the English department! I have been told by the SENCO that I need to run my ideas for resources next year by her, so that she can go and discuss long term plans with SLT. I'm not willing to share, as I know where the credit will go. Never is a positive word said about what I do - the SENCO questioned whether I scored 'average' in my performance review. I am essentially allocating, planning, creating work, delivering (teaching), marking, recording, evaluating and testing. I have colleagues on the same money, who go into lessons, work and leave. It's beginning to really grate!
