Apologies if this has been asked already recently. I really want to apply for a maternity cover post as an NQT. I'm just wondering what the deal is with maternity covers. The advert says they're looking for someone to cover the full academic year from September, but I understood that if the person on maternity wanted to come back early, she is entitled to do so. If this is correct, could the school terminate the contract early, or do they have to honour what's in the advert? Thanks in advance!
