Hi As my title suggests, I am thinking of leaving my job, but am currently in the middle of securing a new mortgage and therefore unable to quit at the October half term. I wanted to know if I were to give in my notice at a different, i.e not the official 31st October or spring half term, what would happen? Would I still be paid up until when I did leave? For instance, if I were to hand in my notice upon my return to school in January with a view to leaving at spring half term, i.e February or for the Easter holidays, would this mean they wouldn't pay me? I noted that LEAs have never pursued anyone to sue them for breach of contract, but didn't know if teachers were paid until when they worked? Would this affect my pension? Sorry for so many questions, but I would be very grateful for any advice.
