Increase in PSA numbers

In an ideal world every class requires a PSA to help the teacher deliver the curriculum properly. There are too many children now with needs and we are not getting it right. We need to give these children the attention and nurture required to help them progress at school. We cannot do this at present. Staff levels are down and teachers are at their wits end trying to cope with children whom we can't 'fix' on our own.

Also because we are trying so hard with the children who have needs, the able children are not getting the input they need and deserve. We all need help.Mor PSA's are required and they need to be paid well too.

Why the contribution is important

We have to get it right for EVERY child and we have to have enough staff to do this. Children are missing out.

    Totally agree, a lot of children don't get the full support that they need.

    I agree with the above mentioned. The extra encouragement and support that PSA's provide in a classroom is so valuable. With class sizes getting bigger, and teaching staff harder to come by how can we as a society expect our teachers to 'cope' with the every growing demands placed on them to have time for all in their class.
