Hi all, I have requested I return to work 3 days per week (I was ft) when I return in Jan after a year of maternity leave. I am a music specialist in a primary school and only teach music (the class teachers are there too, I am not PPA cover). I am salaried and employed as a teacher, not a peripatetic teacher. I have written a proposal for my head asking for 3 dyas a week and detailing a timetable in which I am able to complete my role within these 3 days. It has been rejected because he said if he lets me work 3 days then he will feel obliged to give others 3 days if they request it. He has no issue with my timetable and has offered 4 days per week instead but I want 3. Is he being unreasonable?? I feel frustrated. Advice? Is he right to consider other staff members' possible future requests?
