I have taught for 11 years and worked in my last school for 18 months which was a local authority church school. This September I started a new promotion in 6th form leadership at an Academy Trust school. I have just found out I am expecting my first baby. I am now worried Ill be only entitled to SMP. I feel like I cant ask HR if they abide by the Burgundy book as I am only 5 weeks pregnant and its far to early to tell school etc. I have attached a section of my contract which I presume is only referring to continuous service for redundancy, not maternity?
