I used to work full time and I am due to return after maternity in June but want to reduce my hours. I have 3 children and want to reduce my hours to part time 2 days. Has anyone else had experience of doing this, how did it go and how did you go about requesting a reduction in days? Were the school ok with it etc? I would eventually; after a few years like to increase myself gradually back to full time but while my children are young I feel that part time works best for our family!
