Ok ladies and gents. I have a prolapsed disc which is pressing on sciatic nerve (I am also 27weeks pregnant). I have been off work for the last 2 weeks (one self certifying and one with sick note). I was back at gp yesterday and have been signed off for another fornight. This would mean going back on the Tuesday before half term. I have just been for my first physio appointment and she doesn't think I should be going back till after half term (would then leave me a half term to get through before maternity leave) but if I am signed off for another fornight night does this mean I won't get paid for Half term or not? DH and I are both teachers and neither of us is sure. I knew about having to go back in for first day after a holiday to ensure illness not counted as over the holidays but what is the position on sick leave? I'm currently in agony and tbh very glad I am not having to contend with ofsted who are in today/tomorrow but if I am not going to be paid for the holiday then I'll have to go back. Help please.
