Confused over contract-HELP!

    Depends on the reason for the contract.
     
  2. I would love to know the answer to this. I'm just starting a maternity cover role. If she states to come back on the last week of term, do I not get paid for August???

    Probably not, Honeycrumb.
    Sorry!
    The school cannot afford to pay you both over the summer, so if she chooses to get the summer pay, you don't.
    Best wishes

  4. Thanks TheoGriff,
    thats a bit of a shame. I'm not scheduled to start until after Feb half term...... could I back out of the contract now?
     
  5. Bad luck, they have screwed you. Is it maternity cover. Not a leg to stand on. Bustards.
     
  6. It might affect how much extra work I put in to the school, which would be a shame. But I thought all of these things were meant to be in partnership with the school. Would I be better to insist to be paid on supply teacher daily rate do you think?
     
  7. You'd have to work it out, probably would be better.
