Hello! I'm a primary school teacher currently hating my work environment and hoping to leave asap! The only reason I'm still at my current school, is because I'm on maternity leave and knew I had to make the most of it in order to have the extra maternity pay. As I have to work 3 months (a term) in order to keep my extra maternity allowance, I am wondering whether to go back this coming September (2020) in order to hopefully find a new role for January (2021), or whether to go back in January (2021) for a new role at Easter (2021). I've only ever started jobs in September, so am not sure what the likelihood of finding a new role midyear would be. Any advice from anyone who's started a job midyear, or who knows more would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
