Hi everyone, I am currently a NQT full time teacher in an independent school for maternity cover. I have been working in this school since the day when the autumn/winter term started in 2015. The school no longer needs my service for next year therefore issued a confirmation letter saying my contract ends on the day when this academic year ends (which is officially Saturday the 25th June 2016). Therefore I will not get paid over the summer holiday. Officially when the contract ends I would have been teaching in school for the whole academic year and I really do think I deserve the pay over the summer holiday. Hence I wonder is there any way I can negotiate with the school for paying me until the end of August? Thank you for all.
