Would I get away with this?

Discussion in 'Headteachers' started by BrainJim, Mar 4, 2011.

  1. We have a job share teacher in the nursery. She job-shares not with another teacher but with a TA Level 4. The TA 4 is excellent and I would like to make her 'the teacher' full-time. Can I?
    If the answer is no could I get away with making her the teacher but only if she agrees to take a part-time teaching course funded by the school (still more cost-effective!)
    Please tell me that I can I'll be so disappointed otherwise

    Eyfs statutory requirements state that foundation stage classes must be taught by a fully qualified teacher, as defined by section 12 of the education act. It's in the appendices.
    The only exception is for short periods of time such as ppa cover. Anything else is against the law.
