If someone is on (or preparing to go on) maternity leave, do they get any additional rights in terms of not being selected for redundancy? Surely it wouldn't be fair to make someone on maternity leave redundant as they wouldn't have a job to go back to once the maternity leave had ended, hence they wouldn't be able to keep the additional maternity pay that they would otherwise have had? Also, if a post in one subject is made redundant, but there is a vacant post in another subject that the teacher is willing to move to, can the head block this? E.g. someone in Science being made redundant but offering to move to Maths which has a vacancy?
