    I'm looking at applying for a different job to start when my maternity finishes in feb. Can anyone advise me on how much I will have to pay back. Also when would I need to tell my school (i do have to get the job first wishful thinking)

    Congratulations on that new baby! Very best of luck with the night-time feeds . . . hope you are getting some sleep.

    It depends on how much maternity allowance you have been getting.

    Here is something to give you a rough idea, but the HR people will be able to tell you exactly.


    Leaving dates and resignation dates

    If, however, you are not returning from maternity, the normal thing is to tell them at the time when you would have said that you were coming back, i.e. 21 days.

    But it would be polite to tell them asap.

    Best wishes
