Looking for others opinions - I have a f/t perm contract, and have just been offered another f/t perm contract in a neighbouring authority. I've also just discovered that I'm (quite newly!) pregnant, which I didn't know about when I applied for the job. Would it be really bad for me to the accept the new post and not even complete a full year before taking maternity leave (I'd be planning to take my full entitlement). I do appreciate I'm in a very fortunate position to have a f/t contract as it is, but I'm thinking in whichever post there'll be a year+ long maternity leave cover available? Thanks for any opinions - I don't want to monumentally pee off a new school before I even get started!
