    thinking of going to 4 days a week as a secondary teacher but have heard that if you apply once and it is turned down, they can't refuse a second time after 12 months has passed? Is that true?

    As far as I'm aware, you can't apply again for 12 months. I don't think they have to grant it but they need a good reason.

    Never heard anything of the sort.

    They're not obliged to consider another application for 12 months, so maybe what's got garbled is that they can't refuse to consider another application 12 months later. If there were sound business reasons the first time, there might well still be sound business reasons the second time.
