Hi, I am a part time teacher on maternity and I was part time before going on maternity. I was planning to return a week before the May half term. However, my husband and I have decided to give our kids a better quality of life so we are going to move to a more rural area which would mean I could not carry on working at my school. So that I don't have to pay back any of my maternity pay can someone clarify how may weeks a part timer has to do and if I wanted to leave in July would I have worked enough weeks? Even though you leave in July does the summer holidays until September count? Or should I return at the May half term, hand my notice in in August to leave at the October half term, which would mean 6 weeks of commuting an hour and a half?
