Dear Theo, please help!

  1. Hi Theo and anyone else who can help,
    I've got two questions:
    1) I started a maternity contract in January. It is very apparent that this is not the school for me and I want to make a quick exit as I believe things will get worse. Will this look really bad to potential future employers and how can I best explain it to them?

    2) Also, if I give in my notice before half-term will I be able to leave at Easter? My contract only specifies that they "will keep me informed" as to when the regular post-holder will return. I have asked for clarification and I have been told I need to give two months notice in the Spring term but that they only need to give me one week's notice. This sounds wrong to me as I thought both sides should have the same notice length.
    I'd really appreciate any advice available on this.
    Many thanks
  2. Thank you Theo and Lara for your advice - I do appreciate it.

    And Lara, good luck with your job application.
