I am currently completing my PGCE and applying for teaching jobs. I am also a mother of 2 twins aged 2.5 years and an 8 year old. They will as from September all attend the same school and moreover my 2 year old twins will need me to spend a little time with them at school for the first week or so to settle them in. Would it be appropriate to ask if I could by arrangement attend school slightly later and leave school slightly earlier on say 3 days a week.I would of course accept a reduction in salary. However I am concerned that as this will be my first year as an NQT it may seem inappropriate. I have a supportive family and can manage but simply need that valuable hour in the morning afternoon 3 times a week. Please infrom me as this is naturally a concern I must resolve. .
