Flexible Working at the Belham

The Belham Primary School believes that flexible working can increase staff motivation, promote work-life balance, reduce employee stress, improve performance and productivity.

We know that we may not always be able to offer parity between job roles but will ensure that our process is transparent and fair to all staff regardless of their job role.

At The Belham, flexible working for all staff looks like:

  • Ability to request authorised leave during term time for personal/family reasons
  • PPA at homewhere appropriate
  • Two-week half term holiday during Autumn Term
  • Minuted meetings

In addition, the following flexible working options can be discussed with the Headteacher (on the understanding that the needs of the school are prioritised and

balanced with the needs of the member of staff making the request).

  • Part-time teaching staff
  • Job share
  • Flexitime/Lieutime
  • Staggered hours
  • Staggered weeks
  • Compressed working
