be ‘rare’ from this year onwards, whether it is cover for someone who has gone home unwell or someone who has called in sick. If someone is on a course, it would be viewed as a planned activity. Thus cover should be arranged and classes should not be split. If classes are split will the children be sent need with work that’s ‘easy’ for them because: the teacher that they are sent to will be teaching their own class they will be unable to teach content that they have not planned or ‘set’ & the majority of the class will most probably be sent to a different year group • • • All children have the right to being taught by a qualified teacher but the bullet point above does not seem to support that. Re-arranging staff who cover PPA to avoid booking a supply or to avoid using a member of staff who’s out of class, would be breaking the Government regulations. When there are multi professional meetings & Annual Reviews: o The teacher should not be released to attend the meeting if it means that an LA is asked to leave another year group so that she can supervise that class. The concern is that the LA will not be aware of medical, behavioural and learning needs specific to children in the class that he/she is supervising. o In the same situation the parallel teacher should not be asked to leave the door of their class open so that he/she can supervise both classes. • • The point above also breaks the Government Regulations in that an LA must not be used to cover staff in this way. Lastly, if one teacher is supervising more than 30 children across two different rooms, the teacher is not covered in terms of the ratio of number of teachers to children
