Teaching assistants and bullying
ABA has written an anti-bullying guide based on the views of children and young people who receive support from teaching assistants.
This guide discusses young people’s views on
good support from TAs
bullying experienced by children and young people who receive TA support in schools
what can be done to prevent bullying for children and young people who receive TA support in school
You can find the guide at the bottom of this page.
One young person told us:
"Inclusion is important because if you’re excluded from the rest of the group it marks you as the odd one out, so you’re more of a target for bullies"
