Hi, I would appreciate some advice. Hope everything below will make sense. I work at an independent school so do not receive enhanced maternity pay so do not need to work 13 weeks to keep extra money etc. Baby was born on 10th July during the school Summer holiday. I made a part time request which was denied so I have decided that I will not return. Is there a way that I can get paid over the coming summer holiday to soften the blow of not getting paid my full wage for the summer holiday that has just gone?
