Summer Pay

    Hello fellow teachers,
    I have been offered a potential long term contract starting after Easter and concluding this July. However, It could possibly go on until Dec 2011.
    If it does conclude in Dec, would it be unreasonable to ask for summer pay, and how much would be a reasonable amount?
    Also, would it be unreasonable to ask for some money over the Easter holidays, prior to starting my role?
    The school is aware that another school is keen to have me.
    Thank you for your time.

    I admire your optimism. I have a long term contract starting tomorrow and ending sometime in October and there isn't a chance in Hell of any holiday pay. They have however offered to pay overtime at agency rate if I have to do a parents' evening, which I consider quite generous.

    Is the other school that wants you offering holiday pay? If not, the school you're negotiating with might just call your bluff.
  3. I've seen LEA contract work still advertised as including holiday pay.
  4. it would be lovely if they did, but somehow I doubt it!!
