So just thinking ahead, what are my rights, if any? I've looked in the Burgundy Book and cannot find anything. Does this mean it's down to individual schools or LEAs? So basically I want to know whether I'm entitled to time off paid or unpaid, and if so how much time. Does this time off count as sick leave (for appointments and procedures, rather than following ET, when I guess in theory mat entitlement kicks in?) as our school policy has recently changed and racking up the sick days would not be good! Questions questions! So, does anyone have the answers, that's what I want to know!
