I have been asked to attend a course for a full day which is about 60 miles from home. I am happy to do this but just wondered whether I was entitled to claim for my petrol as it will be quite expensive and myself and OH are on a low income. I also usually work 2.5 hours a day so obviously will be doing much more hours and have had to ask OH to take a day off work to do the school runs. I just wondered what others do in this situation . I don't want to ask for money and then feel embarrassed. This is quite a new job for me, in previous schools I have been offered time off in leau (sp?) but have never had to travel so far.
