    I am wondering what would be fair in temporary or maternity cover roles?
    Example, you are offered a maternity leave cover for what the school estimate as 6 months (although as ever this can be less if the post holder returns sooner). e.g. September to March. You secure a job in a different school from January to July. Is it fair to hand in your notice and leave in January for this new job.
    I know that mat covers tend to say 4 weeks notice etc or maybe less but would a school make your name mud if you gave notice to leave earlier than the return of the post holder?

    Resigning within your contractual timespan is no problem. It is different from accepting a job then turning it down a week later.
