    I have requested 2.5 days per week (the second half of the week) job share when I return to work after mat leave, but have a feeling the school may ask me to do either 2 or 3 days. Have a meeting in a few weeks time.
    Those of you who jobshare, does anyone do half a week each (primary). If so, how do you split the week, and what is agreed with school about PPA time and handover with the other teacher?

    I know of a 0.5 jobshare where they do alternate Wednesdays ... have you considered that? I believe the :pPA time is on Wednesdays too.

    This pairing also share the childcare - it works well for both of them.
  3. Surely if you did 2.5 and the other teacher did 3 then this would also cover the PPA time for both of you? Therefore to the advantage of the children as they wouldn't have the inconsistency of a third teacher.
  4. In my school they do two days and then alternate Fridays.
    If I was offered 3 days I'd have been literally over the moon- but they didn't, and won't ever! So unless I want to look for another job after baby number two, I am stuck doing full time.
    Irrelevant completely- sorry! Just feeling really resentful at the moment.
    Good luck and hope it goes your way
