Me too. I'm sure that I remember this mentioned when it was first proposed and there were some other wording in the proposal which made it clear it was 40 days for the purpose of leave calculation (or something like this). We thought it was something to do with new legislation on accrued holidays when sick or maternity leave and would avoid councild having to pay up to 66 days for teachers. It's a bit worrying that it now seems to be about holidays (or is it?). Lack of straightforward info is annoying.
