Pregnancy and Maternity

  • Pregnancy and maternity discrimination is when you are treated unfairly because you are pregnant, breastfeeding or because you have recently given birth (in the last 26 weeks).  You must suffer a disadvantage as a result of the unfair treatment.

    At Oxford Brookes, we are proud of our well-established occupational policies and practices to support staff and their partners in pregnancy and afterwards including a generous maternity policy, flexible working policies and career breaks. We have rest rooms at each of our main campuses for nursing mothers:

    Gipsy Lane Campus Room AG21c
    Wheatley Campus A1.01
    Harcourt Hill Campus N Building Room 8

    The University has its own Nursery on campus for the children of university students and staff, which caters for children aged between 4 months and 5 years.
