Fixed Term Teaching Contract - not being paid for the summer

Discussion in 'Pay and conditions' started by shogran, Mar 21, 2012.

  1. I was employed on a one year fixed term contract from September 2011 and i was told that this would be for 1 year, the contract gave the end date 31st July, stupidly I signed without checking. I was only hoping to stay till Easter but circumstances have changed. I am hoping to stay till July. Should I be entitled to full pay over the summer holidays too?

    So, i was wondering where I stand with regards to getting paid during the summer! If having taught for a full academic year?
    Please help me with my queries!!??

    If it is a maternity covere & the other teacher comes back, then you aren't entitled to summer pay, but if it isn't & your post continues next year with another teacher then (I think) you might be - seek Union advice (once you have politely queried the date with your HT), I suggest.

    Just to check:
    - what type of school?
    - are you covering a matenity leave?

    If it;s to 31st July you will be paid to then and no more. Sadly this is a trick pulled on less experienced teachers to get out of paying for the summer break. Your contract ought to have been to 31st August.
