Please help! I am wanting to return to work part time (4 days a week) and I have a seen a job advertised at my school for a position like this (2 afternoons off instead) I am wanting to take it. Would my head have to consider me for the position? It is to start in September, however my maternity doesn't finish till January and I do not want to give up 5 months with my baby (LO would only be 6 months if I were to go back then). Can he deny me the change in position because I am unwilling to give up my maternity leave?? Thanks for your help.
