your opinion on maternity leave and K.I.T. days

Discussion in 'Headteachers' started by mmmredwine, Apr 25, 2012.

  1. Hi,
    Thank you I realsied after he siad no that this was the rule. I have been into school to work but I am not being paid at all but I knew this on the day I went in, I just thought it was important that I did go.
    I am angry that I want to go in to help with students grades and have been told no. But mainly I am just shocked at the fact that I am not getting any hand over at all. My cover's contract is terminated the day before I go back - I am taking back my exam classes surely some handover is essential???

    I'm afraid it is probably all down to cost - the school have paid cover wages whilst you have been off and also contributed to your maternity pay (Clearly your right and I am not suggesting it shouldn't be - just that your maternity is already a major expense to the school and now you are wanting more wage whilst the cover is still being paid)

    Sorry if that sounds harsh but purely from a schools point of view your maternity has probably meant that the quality of teaching ahs gone down whilst expense has gone up
