I am an overseas teacher on a temporary full time role. I have missed the May 30 cut off to resign at the end of Summer term as my circumstances have only changed recently which lead me to want to go home. I am contracted until December 31, 2012. I would be happy to stay at the school until late September (which would be 3 months notice) to enable a new teacher to be hired if needed. But also would be happy to leave at the end of summer term if the school finds a replacement and no longer needs me in Sept. Has anyone been in a situation where they have needed to give notice after the cut off date? I have read that this is up to the head teachers discretion. Does anybody have any extra info regarding this and if this would be acceptable? Cheers and thanks.
