    I do not know who told you that what you did was the norm, as it isn't!
    For state schools there are 3 dates for starting/stopping your job as a teacher. Your current school will pay you up to and including 31st August. Your new school will pay you from 1st September.
    They may expect you to turn up on their doorstep then, or not until the first day of term. Contact them to find out.
    Either way, you get paid from 1st September.
    Good luck in your new post!

    I do Application and Interview one-to-ones, and also contribute to the Job Application Workshops. We look at application letters, executive summaries and interviews, with practical exercises that people really appreciate.
    I am timetabled for the October workshops - see you there!
  3. I was told that by colleagues at my previous school- thank you for clarifying that for me. I would have felt rather foolish had I taken issue with the school and found out later that this is always the case. Thanks again.
