Hi all, This is a bit different, I used to work in a school so they know me well I worked there in 2018 until May 2019 but then they had no work for me, so I did a month or two supply and then am still working now through a year's contract elsewhere My old school re-advertised, I spoke to the head on the phone and he said (as the listing for the job said) - that it would be a fixed term until May job, but that there was a good chance it could become permanent if numbers continue to trend up (in terms of primary kids coming into the school) - and that they had debated making it permanent in the ad, but decided against it I re-applied and succeeded, the contract came through recently but on it, it says 'permanent' for emploment type, with a commencement date and no end date listed Now, if this is deliberate I'm thrilled but I don't know if this is like a clerical error? Nobody told me it was permanent, not even the deputy on the phone offering the position - where do I stand with this? Do I sign it, send it back and then I'm permanent just like that? can they later withdraw it and claim it was an accident? Would I be wrong to do that, should I query it or something and risk them withdrawing that and sending a new fixed term one? I'm leaning towards sending it but how do I then broach the subject because I feel like I can't celebrate until I know that for sure it's a fixed thing? Can anyone help?
