I was just wondering if you have advice. My headteacher said that if we take a medical appointment during school hours, we would have half a days wages docked off. i.e if we got back from our appointment at 9:45, she would take the whole mornings wages off us. Is this right? Is this allowed? I don't have an issue with having the time I am away docked off my wage & will of course try and arrange appointments out of school hours, but half a days wages seems really unfair. Is a similar thing happening at other schools?
