I am currently an Assistant Headteacher in a local primary school; My wife is a nurse and currently works full-time incl weekends. I have been Assistant Headteacher for the past two years, first year I was on cover but got made permanant Assistant Head last September. However, I am looking to cut my work load down and one of my options is wanting to go part-time to at least three days a week. I've discussed this with my wife and after looking at our morgate, It looks like I will be able to cut down but I have no valuable reason to do this. I am worried the Headteacher will deney my request as the structure for next year, is currently on going and there are a lot of change round.
