Fears council breaking law to cope with teacher shortage

Moray Council has been accused of “failing” children after it emerged teachers dedicated to pupils with specialist needs have been pulled to cover staff shortages more than 300 times since the beginning of the year.
Moray Council admits that pulling the staff from pupils that need the support risks a “detrimental” impact on their education.

And fears have also been raised schools could fall foul of equalities legislation and risk tribunals if the practice continues.

However, authority officials have warned that if the ASN teachers had not been used then whole classes would have had to be sent home due to a lack of classroom staff.
