Re: Glad you managed to get some rest in

HR person is wrong (surprise!). As a parent, you will have the right to request flexible working - including the option to go part time. While the right is a right only to ask, your employer can only reject the request if there are good business reasons to do so. Given Nice Boss supports you, that's case closed, but even if he didn't I'd find it hard to believe that in our sector, and in our type of work, going part time would really break the "business" of our employers.

Re: Glad you managed to get some rest in

's what I thought, but thank you for the backup. :-)

Perhaps their worry is that if I go p/t then it will be hard for them to turn this job back into f/t after me, assuming I probably won't stay here for ever (& given jobs are being cut they may not want to lose 1/5 of a post that they then won't be able to re-fill at f/t, if you see what I mean). I dunno, though, I am just guessing. I will sit down & talk to HR/bosses properly when I've got my magic form (MATB1?) from the thingy (goodness knows how one gets one of those, I really should find out).

Re: Glad you managed to get some rest in

Your midwife/GP - the school secretary took a photocopy of Mrs S's, which wasn't good enough for HR at the Council, so I had to bike round the original. This info probably isn't relevant, but is free!

I've been off for a few days DIYing, but I've got those screw removers in my bag - I'll try to drop them to OUCS later.
