Can my employer force me to do a job I do not want to do.

Hello, I work in a Special Needs School in the Science Department as a Teaching Assistant (TA). Just before he left, my manager changed my timetable. I now work 1:1 with a boy who is quite strong he is 5ft 6in. His behaviour is at times unpredictable in that he will throw himself on the floor lash out at me or run away. I am a 45 year old woman who is 5ft 2in. He often 'accidentally' touches by breasts or my bottom and says inappropriate things to me. I am also required to transport him offsite to another building. I tried speaking to my manager before he left but he did not care.
