My child is half way through year 3 and hasn't had one permanent teacher this year. Is there any teachers out there who can put my mind at rest and say this wont make any difference to DS education, myself and most of the other mums are really annoyed.Any feed back would be grateful
Like any job there are good and bad supply teachers. We get the odd one who just "babysits" them - makes sure behaviour is ok but justs lets them get on with the cover work and doesn't really interact and teach as such (secondary). However we have some outstanding supply teachers - in some cases better than the full time staff. Ours fall in to two categories - old timers who are semi retired but still love teaching enough to do supply and young teachers hoping to get a job with us. Your dc could be lucky and have had really keen enthusiatic teachers. It us a shame there is no stable teacher for them to bond with. I think I would address this to the head or governors, especially if you can join forces with a few others... just see what the longer term plans are and why they havent appointed.
Thank you for your replies, they did have one teacher who stayed for a few months but I think she moved to another town, to be honest we are all a bit confused. The most annoying thing is as you pointed out Ohhe good and bad in every job , one of the teachers they had was heavily pregnant and looked shattered everyday. Anyway I will take your advice and speak to board of governors. Thx
Girlsy, don't get me started on this one I thought it was great until! The big until I have an older child there and everything seemed to be fine, until the head started shuffling all the teachers around. To cut a long story short the reason my older child is fine is because he is actually very bright. The young DS average if not below average but didn't find out until I had them both assessed (because no communication from supply teachers in year 3 ) due to bonding etc. So will have to take a step forward an speak to head, but I'm always scared of upsetting anyone in. Thx for your concern.
