    Hi all,
    Im currently on ML and due to return to work at the beginning of July- Im employed as a permanant member of staff working 2.5 days - and want to return for just 2 days.
    Alot has happened at my school since me being on ML - the school has federated and the lady who was taken on to cover my maternity leave has been given abfull time contract! So of course im worried about where Im going to be put when I get back as there are currently no 'teaching' jobs!! I need to write a letter to the Govs expressing my wish to change my days/hours. Do I use the form on the direct Gov website? Any additional help would be much appreciated, as in what i can write ' for the benefits' of the school, etc. Thanks x

    Beside receiving advice from the Fourm,assuming you are in a Union you need to discuss this situation with the Regional Centre not a school rep.
     
  4. The school has a legal obligation to give you your old job back. So if they have given someone else a new contract, that is their fault and they need to give you 2.5 days teaching. There maybe some room for negotiation if you want to ask, but they HAVE to give you 2.5 days, like before you left.
    I would definately contact your union for a chat. They will give you advice about what to write in your letter and can tell you what to say/not to say. It will be confidential.
    Good Luck!
