Hi, I have recently returned from maternity leave. I had my back to work interview with my HT in January and it was agreed that I would return to work on a 3 day week doing a job share with another teacher and likely getting my old class back. On my first day back to work at the end of March, I was told that I would not be getting my old class back and that I would be helping out in another class whose teacher was heavily pregnant and then taking over her class when she went on maternity leave, which was fine by me. Over the Easter holiday I received a phone call from the HT to say that the pregnant teacher had gone on long term sick so I would be taking over as class teacher from Monday, but the teacher who I was supposed to be doing a job share with would be coming back full time from May. Well May has arrived and I had not been told what my role would be now the agreed job share had disappeared without discussion. I asked my HT and was told that he had not really thought about what I was going to do so I could just help the LSAs with small group work for the time being and then he would see. I feel completely redundant in my job as my maternity cover has been kept on as class teacher and there is essentially nothing for me to do. I was under the impression that I was entitled to return to the job I left but instead I have no timetable and and just an extra pair of hands to be shoved from pillar to post when the situation arises. It feels as though I have been demoted (albeit with teacher salary) to a glorified LSA, which was the job I did 8 years ago before the blood, sweat and tears of doing my PGCE. None of this was discussed with me previously as I was under the impression I was returning to work as a class teacher with a job share. I plan on ringing my union tomorrow, but can my HT do this? Can he take away an agreed job share, and not have a role for me to come back to from maternity leave? I was really looking forward to going back to work and this has really upset me. I have worked my backside off for that school throughout a very difficult pregnancy and before, and it seems as though I am no longer needed but cannot be made redundant. Any suggestions?
