    I have a fit note that runs into the summer holidays. I have been off three weeks nearly. School are saying I won't be paid over the holidays. I can't believe this is right. Any body had a similar dilemma.

    That's bo**ocks. A fit note doesn't stop you returning to work and you don't have to be signed back onto work either. I'd suggest calling in on the first day of hols to say if it were a normal work day you'd be fit to work. If you can't do that keep going back to the docs and getting signed off. If you're not telling the whole story though and you've had several periods of absence and triggered all sorts of consequences for this then they might be right, best check with the Union.
