Wondering if anyone has any experience of being pregnant while doing supply work? Were you able to get any maternity benefits and how easy was it to arrange? I've been working as a supply teacher for a year. Happily expecting! From what I can work out, as I've worked with same agency for over 26 wks and have been paying NI, I am actually entitled to some form of maternity benefits. However I don't know if the agency would pay this or the state? Or even if the agency will bother as they don't pay you if you don't work and you don't get sick pay etc. I'm basically expecting to receive nothing and anything I do get will be a bonus. However as I've worked regularly since leaving uni this seems a tad unfair! If anyone can shed any light on this or offer any advice, it would be graetfully received.
