    Hi there,
    I just need some clarification on resignation dates.
    I have accepted a job for an April start.

    Teacher's burgundy books states that i can hand in resgination at the latest 28th Feb for an April start.
    Is this correct - i am just seeking clarity....as i need to do this asap!

    Many thanks

    Yes, but this only applies if you are in a maintained school, or an academy which follows this. Check your contract for resignation dates in an academy, free school or indy.

    Easter resignations - different term dates old school new school

    I may be being very silly, but i think i need help in interpreting what it states in my current contract.
    It is an academy.

    'Notice Period
    The period of notice for teachers shall be two months for the Autumn and Spring terms and three months for the Summer term, expiring at the end of term.
    For the purpose of these arrangements the three terms in each year shall be constituted as the follows:

    the summer term - may 1 to august 31
    the autumn term - sept1 to dec 31
    the spring term - jan 1 to april 30 .'

    Do i need to resign today or by the end the of the week - or will i have until 28th Feb?

    And Theo, thank you for your advice! I was appointed today as a HoD and looking forward to doing what i enjoy!

    End of month is two months before 30 April.

    But do it asap if you've had the HoD offer in writing.

    Follow the wording

    Congratulations by the way! Do I get a % commission on your new salary?


    Best wishes
