I think finally, that I am going to quit during the summer hols'. Not certain but quite likely. I can't figure out how the portion of my pay due during the summer time off will be apportioned though. Naturally, I want to 'work' until the very last moment, even though I will not be physically present, if you see what I mean. The fact that I want to take advantage of the vagaries of the TA pay system may seem grasping I know but it doesn't to me, seeing as I believe it is only pay that I have already earnt. So I'm thinking I should send my HT a letter dated one month before my last payday before school resumes. This will satisfy the notice requirements and allow HT to hire someone else. Am I thinking straight in this? My other point is that I wonder whether I should send a copy of my letter to the governors. Should it be c/o the school or to a targeted representative? Hope there is someone who can help with this.
