Hmmm does this also affect TAs who are cover assistants?

We're already due to lose 15 TA's this summer, I think, due to SEN funding being slashed.

Well, it appears to be early days in the discussions but the tone is that it means scrapping all TAs completely.

I think LAs do things differently but funding is definitely directed to the SEN child who is statemented, rather than the one that isn't. It could even be that the SEN dept can "demand" hours from the school for statemented children who have a recommendation from the LA but if the child isn't statemented then the school may say that they cannot afford it and so the child, who may have very particular needs, goes unsupported.
