Hi, I'm in my 6th year of teaching but have been on maternity since Jan 2015 and didn't return as I was on a temporary contract and my head wouldn't accept a part time request. In hindsight it was a blessing in disguise as we had some family health problems and I've needed the extra time off. I'm thinking of looking for positions to start in September and a friend suggested sending speculative emails to Heads of local schools to put 'feelers' out to find out the likelihood of them having any positions that suit my new part time needs. What do you think?! Thanks!
