PM cycle for those on maternity

Discussion in 'Pregnancy' started by dew_a_change, Apr 7, 2011.

  1. Hi all,

    I'm due to go on maternity in mid-may and was wondering whether my PM cycle ends in October 2011 or does it freeze and I continue it on my return, which would be the following year.
  2. i'm not sure - i didn't start this year and only just went back, and i've been told that i'm not doing PM this year due to my maternity leave and missing 2 terms.
  3. HI
    When I got in touch with county to ask they said to me that you just return on your new PM scale and pick it up from there. I am leaving in July and returning after Christmas so I have been told I will get my pay increase automatically from September (Which I was glad about as I only miss the end of the cycle by about a month)
    Hope they got it right as it doesnt seem fair to have it stopped for a whole year if you are going to be there for part of it.
  4. It does not freeze - you are still classed as being employed on maternity and so you move up the pay spine as normal. My head didnt' do a PM cycle this year as I went on mat leave on 1st November and going back 1st July - he couldn't see the point for 2 1/2 months. -
  5. I will have done two terms so just need to know when to show my evidence for the academic year 2010-2011. Should i show it just before I leave so the school can judge whether I#'ve met my objectives which i know I will have by then.
