Am just coming to the end of a maternity cover, which was due to finish in May. Have been asked to teach up until & including the last teaching day. I always knew I would not receive money for the summer holidays. However, returning teacher is coming back part time in sept but also part time for the final week (head wants her to be a bit involved) so...the school are only paying her part time over the summer!!! Personally i think this is unfair but...can i therefore claim any of the remaining summer salary? (independent school by the way) thanks!
