How likely is it to be granted part time (2 days) from being full time?
It totally depends on your school. I requested a 0.6 timetable and they refused initially until I said i'd appeal, and then they gave me 0.5. I don't think they were happy about it though, and as a result I have mainly bottom sets.
I agree with Chica, I have put in my request for 3 days a week and waiting to hear (head has said that there are no grounds to refuse it so fingers crossed!)
hope everything works out for you
I have just requested 3 days part time as of September 2011. The head said she would do what she could but it also has to fit in with the needs of the school. I have to put my request in writing and then it is presented to the governers - I find out March/April time.
I think they have to consider it and have a good enough reason if they say no. My head said she will think of a few different scenarios and put them to me. I also requested which year group I would ideally like to be in (I teach primary).
I would suggest they find you someone to job share with. They can't really argue that this doesn't fit in with the needs of the school as they'd have a fulltime teacher. I think this is easier for them if you want to do 2 days than 3 or 4.
