Paid classroom assistants in each school

A paid classroom assistant to be provided in each primary school. 

Why the contribution is important

After seeing first hand the job role of teachers especially in primary age schooling, I feel that a classroom assistant is essential to the progress of pupils. The asssistant could be available throughout the school depending on the class timetables and also uses to cover playground duties which is currently in fairly poor provision in many Borders schools.

The  classroom assistant would not only be in use of an ANA as at a young age, all children are in need of support during the classroom.

    I agree with this completely.
    It’s surely one of the better apprenticeships around. On the job training and valued highly by the teachers and the students.
