I've been teaching for well over four years. I've always taught in non-independent schools. For reasons which I won't go onto here, midway through February, I attempted suicide. I was in hospital for a couple of weeks. I've just received a letter from my headteacher, telling me that I'm on half pay as of the end of March, and that I'll receive no pay at all after June. I work in a regular non-independent / non-academy school. Surely I'm entitled to more sick pay that this? I've had about six weeks. The Burgundy Book implies that years of service sick pay entitlement carries over from one school to the next. If this were the case, I'd be in the top (4 years +) bracket.
