I would like to know what support if any you have been offered whey you went back to work after mat leave. My sittuation is that I returned in july and really it has been an expectation that I just carry on where I left off, even though I was an NQT before going off, and did not teach for the few weeks where I was at work last year before starting mat leave. I had a pretty horrible pregnancy and my baby was born very early, fortunately it all worked out well and all is fine now. I've gone back to work and I'm working harder than ever - however, this does not appear to be enough. I've had an inadequate obs and now there are support measures in place. I can't help feeling that perhaps there should have been some support measures in place on my return, and so would like to know what happens at other schools. I'm also informed by another member of staff that this is not the first time there have been issuse with staff returning from mat leave. Any comments/advice much appreciated.
