I am asking for advice regarding substitute days off. I currently am a newly qualified teacher as of July 2019. I am undertaking my first teaching post which is a maternity cover (Mid September 2019 to Mid June 2020).I haven't signed any contract etc. it was more so a verbal agreement to cover the maternity leave and I am being paid on a day to day basis (sub rate). My query relating to this is my family have booked a holiday during St. Patrick's Day 2020. The school is closed on the Monday 16th and Tuesday 17th and are due to return on Wednesday 18th. My flight is not due to arrive until Wednesday night/ Thursday morning. I am wondering if I will be allowed/ am I entitled 1 day off (Wednesday) as I am technically a 'sub' and any advice as to how I should go about this matter would be greatly appreciated. Many thanks in advance!!!
