    I had a temp contract, that i signed, from sept 01/2010 til dec 31/2010. I was asked to stay until at least Easter, with the possibility of extending until the end of the summer term. However, I have not had a contract to sign that will take me up until Easter, so if i decided to leave how much notice would i have to give? would it still be half a term? in which case i would stay until Easter. Or is it less?
    I am thinking of applying for jobs outside the teaching profession.

  3. If your written contract expired yesterday, today you are no longer employed.
    Doubtless this schol will expect you to turn up as normal next week. If you are reliant on them for a good reference, you'll need to discuss your situation with the head or your line manager. You could be frank and suggest you'll stay until you find an alternative - they will probably look for a replacement asap and want you to go as soon as a replacement is found.

    Local Authority may not have got round to doing it yet, or even more likely, school have forgotten to inform LA. I once got my contract 3 weeks before it expired. if you've been asked to say on, turn up and sort it out then. Alternatively, is there noone you could phone to check?
