In-depth article
Can a TA take pupils on a coach to a swimming lesson? We relay advice from one of our associate education experts, a union and One Education on teaching assistants (TAs) and higher level teaching assistants (HLTAs) taking pupils to other educational venues on a coach. We also point to guidance on school swimming and examples of schools’ approaches to this.
