I was hoping someone can give me a definitive answer about resignation periods. I am a teacher with no middle management or senior responsibility on a full time and permanent contract. Can I leave mid term - i.e. February? Could I hypothetically hand in my notice before Christmas and leave for the start of Term 4? I've read the Burgundy book and it states I can give 2 months notice but then also lists dates of notice periods. It's all very confusing and I've been told that leaving mid term is not possible.
