    want to hand my notice in today.

    But have I paid off my mat leave pay please?

    I took a whole year off. I was full time. Then I went back 3 days a week on march 23rd, if I hand in notice today, I'll leave August 31st.

    Help gratefully received.
    I worked it out as yes I have butI'm doubting myself!

    Ring your HR dept and ask them to check and confirm by email.

    Then just do it!

    Or just do it anyway... you mind is made up based on your post so don’t let money get in the way of happiness.

    How about requesting in the first paragraph to go back to FT teaching from the last day of term? Then resign in second paragraph.

    It might not be possible, depending on the conditions for your pt teaching, and even if it were possible, they might not agree, as it would cost them more.

    But if they did agree, you'd get full pay for the hols and more days added to your return to work total. Worth a try, but don't pin your hopes on it.

    Keep safe, everyone.

    Get your union advice before you resign. I can’t see the school paying you a salary over the summer- it costs them more! Think what do you need more, happiness or wealth?

    Of course the OP will be paid over the summer; why wouldn't they be?

    I reckon that's 23 clear calendar weeks, so 69 working days, which gives a margin over the 65 required.

    I can't see a school agreeing to make someone full-time again over the summer - they've no obligation to even consider it. However provided the OP resigns "with effect from 31st August" they'll be paid over the summer for the 3 days a week.

    Your head may wave it anyway. Least of their worries at the moment.xx
