Up to 50 vacant education jobs for specialist support staff in Highland schools are being “deleted”.
Pupil Support Assistants
Highland Council is beginning a “phased approach” to targeting cuts in its education budget.
Pupil support assistants have described being bitten, spat at, cut, beaten and even kicked in the teeth in a new report.
Concerns have been raised after new figures exposed a “vast disparity” in the number of classroom assistants in schools across Scotland.
Pupil support assistants feel undervalued and are being “abused at work on a regular basis” in the city, it has been claimed.
