Hi everyone, I may be starting a new job in September and I am currently doing some Supply Work at the school in question through a Supply Agency. My agency have mentioned that it MAY be possible for me to get paid over the summer period in order for the school to secure me for the role. I have been told that the school will have to pay the agency for 12 weeks while I go from a temp to perm contract with the school. The agency have said that in very rare occasions if a school is very keen to secure a teacher for a role they could pay the teacher over the summer before starting their role. My question is - have you heard of any teachers who have managed to secure a summer pay without officially starting teaching at the school until the Sept? Many thanks. I look forward to hearing back from you.
