February half term booked off which is the last of my holiday. Don't like taking the whole of Feb off as I usually get on with PAT testing but thanks to having to cancel holidays last year, I'm not losing any entitlement that's due.

Pre School won't be happy as they'll want to get their guy in to do some renovations, but there we go.

Re: Leave entitlement

Nice to see some folk have some well earned rest booked in or ready to use.

Especially in this day and age.

Rest well when you can

Re: Leave entitlement

29 days + bank holidays here. Used to get 2 extra days after 10 years but the council scrapped it for Manual workers just before I started. Office staff still get 31 days though. -Angry.png-

So many it's not even funny carried over 10 days from last year then Covid hit and keyworker children... was even on standby for the bank holidays.
Managed to get 2 weeks in the summer and a couple of days in the October half term.

But apart from that everything else was cancelled. problem now is all the contractors that were delayed in the first lockdown i'm now having to catch up on.

I don't even want to know how much holidays I have left but i know for definite I need a break -Sleepy.png-

Re: Leave entitlement

Most local authorities start at 26 days then after 5 years service increase by 5 to 31 days not including bank hols. but can always check with the LA what there policies are. -Like.png-

Re: Leave entitlement

Providing there aren't contractors in on the holidays, I'm able to take time off. If no works happening at all, I'll just do the minimum 2 days per holiday that the cleaners have to do. Definitely a perk of a small (ish) primary school.

Re: Leave entitlement

Only been in the job for 2+ years but started on 25 plus the 8 bank holidays. Carried days over every year since ( 3 to be carried over this year).

You will laugh at this though, cleaning staff with the same allowance demanding I open up In the Feb half term because they have used their allowance and want to work.

Re: Leave entitlement

How have you not sorted that situation yet?

It's absolutely their right to expect the school to be open if they're expected to be at school working.

And it's absolutely his right to expect to not have to open school when he has taken holidays. Sounds like the school needs another keyholder or 2!

Very true on both counts but not the cleaners fault.
