Maternity, paternity and parental leave and pay
In the 'Resources' section below, you will find the NASUWT guidance on maternity, paternity and parental leave and pay. The advice booklets contain detailed information on the family friendly rights of teachers working in schools in England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales.
The leaflets incorporate the changes made to
statutory parental leave in 2013.
Advice on the legal requirements in assessing
risks in relation to new and expectant mothers’
job activities is set out in the Health and Safety
