Maternity and Adoption Leave: Your rights as an employee

September 2020

This guidance and checklist by ASCL Pay and Conditions Specialist Louise Hatswell aims to help you know what steps to take and when, and your entitlements and options if you are a senior leader working in a school, academy or sixth form college in England.  

It has been produced so that ASCL members who are pregnant or on maternity leave are aware of their entitlements. It will also be useful for ASCL members who manage staff who are pregnant or on maternity leave.
