This policy explains what leave you can take if you want to spend more time with your child.
- You can apply to your Head of School/Service for unpaid leave if you want to spend more time with your child.
- You will be given a total of 18 weeks unpaid leave for each child up to their 18th birthday depending on your length of service.
- You can take this time in blocks of between one week and four weeks.
Our policy endeavours to be fully inclusive and supportive of all types of couples and family relationships and we have attempted to reflect this within our policy. Where individual staff members are in relationships not outlined in the document and are finding barriers to access, we encourage a conversation with your HR Manager. We will evolve our policy in line with your feedback, regulations, best practice and legislative developments.
