More than 50, teachers decided, last year, to leave the classroom and pursue their careers elsewhere. The government should take note: it has succeeded in making teaching so difficult and so exhausting that it has created the highest flight from the profession of all time. Perhaps someone should award ministers a medal for turning the teacher supply challenge into a crisis? What do teachers do when they pursue pastures new? Surprisingly, the majority remain in education. Fifteen per cent of teachers who leave the profession before retirement become teaching assistants TAs.

How can we reconcile undertaking the actions needed to unlock the potential of teaching assistants TAs at a time when budgetary pressures mean more are back-filling teacher shortages? A survey by ATL in February found a high proportion of support staff are doing lesson cover on top of their existing demands. The drift to using TAs for cover raises two interconnected concerns: firstly, there is the risk of TAs being over-stretched and, worse still, exploited; and secondly, there is the impact on children with Send. The case for greater pay tends to be justified on the basis that, in practice, TAs do a similar job to teachers. Yet the odds of resolving this genuine, long-standing dispute lengthen daily, as the parlous state of school funding is laid bare. Unless the government dramatically revises its position, the only realistic way TAs can be paid more is for schools to have far fewer of them.
