Maternity leave- summer hols

    I’m wanting to return from maternity leave just before the summer holidays start in order to get paid for the 6 weeks. Is there a minimum time that I need to be back for? Or could I return for a day before breaking up for example?

    Thanks in advance

    You can return on the first day of the summer holidays if you wish.

    Only relevant if you're thinking of stopping teaching or moving schools:
    If you return at the start of the May half-term break, you can usually get your 13 weeks necessary to avoid paying back OMP done by the end of August - with shared parental leave, there may be the option of the other parent doing the childcare for those few weeks, too.
    This may not be relevant to you, but it's one that some people don't realise is possible until too late, so I'm mentioning it just in case.
