Hello all, posted this in part time forum too as I didn’t spot this one before I have been a primary teacher for 5 years and my husband has recently become a high school teacher we have just got married and bought a house so naturally we are now thinking about starting a family and are at the very early stages of the adoption process As we are both full time, I currently cannot imagine us having the time to look after children with things as they are. Our plan is for me to go to 0.6 after a few months adoption leave but I am very nervous about asking my school for this. I’ve picked up on vibes from my head teacher that she is not fond of part timers. Any advice on this? I am aware that those two extra days will not be true days off as there will always be prep to do but I am hoping that this will ease things up significantly. Am I naive for thinking this? Also, I know that there are compromises everyone has to have but I’m finding the prospect of my salary (and pension!!) being reduced when switching to 0.6 scary too. I know that I can’t be a full time teacher as I struggle to find time for my husband as it is! But I wondered if 0.6 teaching + some work from home part time kinda stuff would be the way to go but I’m not sure whatopportunities there would be for this? sorry for the long post and lots of questions. Any help sorting my life out would be much appreciated!!
