Hi all, I'd really appreciate hearing about the experience of any part time primary teachers. We want my husband to work 4 days a week next year so that he gets a day a week with our children. Previously he worked 5 days and I did 3. We would like the children to only do 3 days a week in nursery and for us both to get 1 day a week with them. Obviously, on the day off, we will have young children so won't do any work. I am a secondary teacher and it was (just about ) possible to manage my work load when I was doing 3 days. However, my husband is in primary (year 5/6) and is concerned that it will be too stressful as everyone he asks says they work on that day off to cope. Can anyone give me any positive stories about teaching 4 days a week at a primary school?!
