Following a succession of fixed-term contracts, am I entitled to a permanent post?

    At my last school, I was given a permanent job without having to apply; the HT said I was entitled to this by law as I had completed two fixed-term contracts that totalled more than a year's work. I thought at the time that this was a little strange as there must be many instances where teachers are needed on a temporary basis for more than a year.
    I now find myself in a similar situation and would like some clarity from someone who understands the laws in this area.
    Is the information my last HT gave me correct?
