Help for teachers in class.

Help for teachers in class.

How does this impact on Community Wellbeing? Each child would get the benefit of two full-time adults focused on their learning, development and well-being. We need people to make schools work; to produce fine, conscientious, kind, productive achieving pupils at the end of it. With austerity, we lost those people. We need more full-time assistants in classrooms to help with the day to day. Or halve the class sizes-there's always that. The community can only benefit, in the short and long term, if you put the carers back in to the careers that desperately need them. Why should the Committee focus on this as part of their future work? Without staff in schools, we can't do our jobs of educating tomorrow's generation.


With increasing statistics of young people’s poor mental health and well being which contributes massively to additional support needed to support these young people firstly by building authentic and meaningful relationships between adults and YP which promotes positive peer relationships and overall allows overall a thriving school community. Without this additional means to support whole child/young person this creates further challenge to all within learning environment.
