Can anyone give me a bit of advice on how to solve this please (I am planning retirement so want to make sure service is correct) I notice on my benefit statement that way back in 2004 I changed schools at Easter and it was from one LEA to another (Essex to Southend on Sea) and the dates seem to show a gap? It should be continuous service shouldn't it? It says I left Essex on 31.3.2004 and started Southend on Sea 19.4.2004. Surely that gap is just the Easter holiday and they were both LEA schools but different authorities, so it should be continuous service shouldn't it? It looks like I'm short changed on a couple of weeks? I suspect I will have to write the both authorities to clear it up!
