    Hello I was wondering if anyone had been in this situation and how they handled it.
    So I started this position in September, It is the first academy I have worked in and I have been very unhappy since the start. I am currently signed off with stress and depression. I made the decision to hand in my notice so that I can leave at the end of the term. However I am now worried that because I am still in my probation period they may not need to pay for the remaining two months of the term. I also am not sure if I will be paid for the time I have had off I have had so far due to my probation.

    Any help that could be provided will be of help. Thanks

    Have you been given a contract yet?

    Are you in Scotland?

    The law, and teaching conditions, are very different there.

    Best wishes

    Yes I have, but am currently back home to be with my family and am unable to look at my contact. No, based in London.

    Many thanks
