Hi, I had my baby at the beginning of March. I'm due back end of November if I go back at the end of paid leave or February if I take 12 months off. What is the deadline for me applying for part time? Also has anyone got any ideas as to what to write to apply? My school aren't keen on having people working part time unless it's permanent and I can't really afford to do that. Ideally I'd want temporary part time for two to three years. It's an SEN school so it doesn't really benefit the school, more myself for a work/ life balance so I'm not sure what to write. I think they aren't keen because of the inconsistency of having two different teachers and it costs them more as they have to employ two teachers on one day of the week. Obviously while my little one is small I want to spend as much time with him as possible. Thanks in advance.
