My only brother has recently gotten engaged and plans to marry in January 2018. It has been hinted to me by members of my department that my head may not allow me the day off for it even though I would only need the one day. I've tried to read through the teachers terms and conditions online and I can't figure out if I'm entitled to the day. Another friend from another department has had a day off to move though, so these two stories seem conflicting. It's not until next year but I am wondering what to do: do I ask and risk a no? Am I entitled to one day off? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
