Schools tend to give minimum holiday entitlement, i.e 4 weeks holiday plus 8 days statutory and customary. all other time off work, unless specified in your contract such as training days are not paid. However if you are term time only your annual wage will generally be split and paid over 12 months, not the 42 and a half weeks you work, so that you get paid a smaller amount all the year including the school holidays. So you will get about 80% of your wage each month for 12 months. Sorry if it seems complicated but this is a regular query. As a general rule whatever figure is quoted as the salary in reality it will be much less even before taxex etc.
