They're not supposed to do this are they?

    One school, knowing that a couple of teachers, married to each other, were making plans for going off travelling, got on and appointed replacements. Then the woman got pregnant, neither handed in their notice, and the school found themselves over-staffed.

    Yes, it's a risk - but if the teacher concerned has been offered the post, there's a bit more certainty that they're actually going and if they teach a shortage subject there's even more reason not to hang about.

    One of your colleagues has found another job, and your Head has recruited a replacement, so you know that your school will be adequately staffed. Most people would be pleased about this. Why does it bother you?
