This website was set up to help teachers understand SPL and how to apply for it. Unfortunately the government policies and paperwork are not the most straightforward and take a bit of getting your head around! For some, therefore, the option of some extra support is welcomed. Since we began offering this additional support in February 2021 we have helped over 4000 families, from all across the UK, apply for shared parental leave. On average our clients benefit from 5 extra weeks of full pay - usually over £2500 more (net!) than they would have otherwise been paid.
We are proud of our 100% success rate for those eligible and promise that should, for any reason, we not be able to help you we will always refund you. Have a look at the support options available below. Please note - on purchase you will receive a google form to complete that gives us all the key dates we require - you'll also be asked to send us your schools term dates and SPL policy (if they have one, it's ok if they don't). See information below for turn around times etc.
PLEASE NOTE: On purchase you will immediately receive a google form to complete with the informaiton we require to get started. You'll then be asked to email us your term dates and the schools SPL policy if they have one.
Option A - £65 (One parent taking leave) A+ £75 (Two parents taking leave)
Your school's specific maternity and shared parental leave policies will be read through before a bespoke plan is drafted for your dates and circumstances.
You will receive a spreadsheet detailing week by week what category of pay you will receive and showing clearly how your blocks of SPL work.
You'll then be able to review the spreadsheet, agreeing any amendments if necessary, before the SPL forms (standard gov forms or specific to your school if required) are drafted for you.
Advice on how to submit the forms is provided and we will provide support at any point if there is difficulty with your employer.
Option B - £95 (One parent taking leave) B+ £105 (Both parents taking leave)
Includes all of option A, but in addition a 30 minute zoom call during the planning stage to talk through the draft plan and answer any questions.
If you initially purchase option A but then decide you do want to talk it through an upgrade can be applied later on and the difference paid.
Option C - Support with employer - £45
If you have applied for SPL yourself but are now facing difficulties with your employer this is the package for you, we have experience in supporting parents tackle a wide range of misunderstandings their employers have about SPL and will be happy to draft letters for you and help get everything sorted. As with all of our packages, if we can't help we will always refund you. This option does not include a zoom meeting, but this can be added subsequently if required.
Option D - Checking of self completed plans/ forms - £40
If you have had a go at creating a plan and drafting the forms yourself but want these checked then this is the package for you. We will check your plan alongside your policy/ term dates and then check the forms are completed correctly. Small amendments will be included in the fee but if the forms need redoing then we would advise of this and ask that you upgrade to package A for us to then complete everything for you.
To purchase simply click on the green button.
We aim to get back to you within 24 hours and most plans can be completed within a fortight of purchase (often much quicker, but sometimes we get very busy and alongside this the majority of our staff are teachers in schools during the day - this is not a full time manned office!) . If your application is urgent please mark it so when emailing us your term dates. Please note though that the 8 weeks notice is 8 weeks before you swap to SPL, not 8 weeks before you start maternity leave.
We are always happy to receive questions, so don't feel that you can't still contact via the form below for quick questions - specific advice about dates and how to plan your leave will now only be given through the channels above though.
