The law states that you cannot leave school before the last Friday in June of year 11, so you will have to continue with your education. The education welfare officer will help you plan the best way that this can be achieved.
You will get maternity leave with home tuition. This normally amounts to about an hour a day of one to one support for your education for six weeks before the birth and twelve weeks after birth.
Generally the school will give your details to the education welfare service office and you will be allocated an education welfare officer who will work specifically with you.
Many professionals at your school will be able to help and advise you about your pregnancy and sexual health. You can also attend a young parent group at your local children’s centres.
You could also access health services through your GP or through maternity services.
