In-depth article
Should a TA's hours on a pupil's EHC plan be protected? We look at whether a pupil with SEN on an EHC plan requires one-to-one support, or whether the teaching assistant (TA) can be shared with other pupils. We relay guidance from the Department for Education and two of our experts.
