When a TA is taken to cover/teach a class who support the pupils that they would normally be working with. I have taught in some schools where there are several pupils being supported by the same TA but not all statemented thus the TAs funding for the one child is spread to encompass several at the same time. NOW this helps a teacher considerably when teaching a class with several needs pupils. Senario................ you are called to cover/teach the class ... who supports them for you to be able to carry out your duties. It must be so much tougher than when the teacher does it with you helping them? Does this happen or do you get another TA to cover your pupils?
