Hi all, Hope someone can help. I was on maternity for a whole school year. I returned in September just gone. I returned to school on a 4 days a week contract until August this year. About 2 months ago, I asked if this arrangement could continue and after a week or so my head teacher said yes. About 3 weeks ago I found out I was pregnant again. Complete shock and unplanned. After a bit of thought it was decided that we could do with the extra money, so I was asking could I go back full time. Baby due in February. I did, the head teacher said she had things to consider etc. I have been told today that I cann't return full time as the school cann't afford it. The head is planning on a higher level teaching assistant to cover my day off (she already covers all PPA). Just wondering where I stand. I could understand more if it wasn't down to a financial issue. I have (or thought i had) a good relationship with the head. Any advice welcome please.
