Feeling very frazzled as I have been told today that I must set work for a TA to teach to a group which SHE has decided she'd like to extract from my lesson!! This is not of my choosing and completely against my wishes- she is supposed to be providing classroom support under my direction as the class teacher- and in my opinion completely educationally unsound. The acting Head simply sent me an email ignoring my request for a meeting to discuss this. I'm very, very upset and wondered if anyone knew what my position was....
They're terrified of Ofsted and I've already said I won't justify it to inspectors...
I'm leaving at the end of the summer, but ideally want to stick it out until then.
Please send advice and virtual chocolate (I've already got the wine!
