SUPPORT our TA's and PROTECT OUR CHILDRENS EDUCATION !!!
This is a petition to support the Teaching Assistants at SS Osmund and Andrews RC Primary School in Breightmet.
There are proposals to make over 10 Teaching Assistants redundant.
These proposals are going to have a massive impact on OUR children's
Education, the Teaching Assistants are a massive credit to the school and have supported our children over the years helping them succeed and become the people they are today!!!
It's time to make a stand and let them know we will not let our children's education be ruined and show our support to the TA's for the amazing contribution they make to the education of OUR children at SS Osmund and Andrews.
CAN teachers or have teachers got the time to do both their own jobs and take on extra of what their TAs do because let's face it not all our kids are academic ... That's where it will hit the most, small groups who need that extra support to reinforce their learning if they haven't quite grasped the concept of the learning objectives for that lesson.
Who are the teachers going to be challenging and spending their time with? The gifted children will they be pushed and encouraged? probably not as the teacher will be pursuing those who need help. Or vice Versa Those who need the help need extra time and support, is it realistic that a teacher with 30-35 children per class spread her time equally to all children, wasn’t this the purpose of TAs in the first place? As someone who has worked with children and a trained TA myself we have the skill set to adapt the learning objectives and help and encourage those that need it thus enabling the teacher to move on for the those children who are capable and need a faster pace of learning.
Who will listen to our children read ? Who will help our children when they can't tie their shoes or find their lunch box? ( which knowing my 2 younger ones this will probably be a daily task for the TAs) Who will recognise when our children are afraid to put their hand up in case they get something wrong? Who will comfort them when they fall over and need an extra bit of TLC ? Who will notice they're not quite themselves today or notice they have had a fall out with their friends on the playground? Who will take the time to sort the petty squabbles out? or get them a pencil because they can't find theirs and don't want to get in trouble? Who will notice when our children are just having a bad day like we all have? It's not just all about teaching and our children learning TAs nurture and care for them and recognise the tiny bits, the quirks and they are the ones that know our children, so our children’s TAs are more vital than anyone gives them credit for!!
The TA's are devastated by this proposal. Yet amazingly their first concern was for the children they work with- even those who have been told they are losing their jobs.
That is a measure of their dedication to the education of OUR children.
NOWS THE TIME TO ACT AND ACT FAST!!!
