Re: Leave entitlement

Part time is a minefield! In my first post I was contracted for 25 hrs term time and 10 hrs in the school holidays. The HT said I could have 4 weeks holiday. I challenged this as my contract clearly stated, I was entitled to 4 weeks at my average working week, to be taken during the school holidays. this is the tricky bit:-

41 weeks @ 25 hrs (term time working) = 1025 hrs
11 weeks @ 10 hrs (School holiday working) = 110 hrs
total 1135 contract hrs per year
1135 hrs ÷ 52 weeks = 22 hrs (average contract hrs over the year)
22 hrs x 4 weeks holiday is 88 hrs holiday
88 hrs @ 10 hrs (weekly hrs in school holidays) is 8.8 weeks holiday entitlement

More than double!

Re: Leave entitlement

20 days when i started plus you got Bank holiday Monday + the Tuesday off. Then came single status who took the Tuesdays off us & gave us extra 5 days annual leave so 25 days. After 5 years service we got an extra 5 days so now i get 30 days + bank holidays but not to be taken in term time.
Is it that TIME already

Re: Leave entitlement

For some reason my post didn't appear, so will try again.
Started on 20 days plus 8 bank holidays & 2 statutory days.
The 2 statutory days you gave up at --- (The word only permitted in December) --- plus 1 day holiday & had off the week between X mas & new year.
After 5 years this went up an additional 5 days.
Then single status came in & you should have started on 25 days plus 8 bank holidays.
Additional 5 days after 5 years.
This was before academies.
If you transferred from 1 LEA to another , then service went with you.
With academies ,most kept the holiday entitlement that was awarded under single status.
But last year I found out that LEA caretakers also had been given 1 statutory day.

I would suggest from reading some of the posts you should contact the union & HR to check your entitlement.
I think a few of you are owed holidays. So don't forget that should be back dated & they would have to pay you for holidays.

Years back me & cleaners were owed for going up a point each year for 3 years. It was only discovered by chance & they had to back date payment.

Re: Leave entitlement

Northumberland is 26 + BH (was 25 until a little while ago), then 30 + BH after 5 years of service.

Re: Leave entitlement

I get 25 plus bank holidays. Manchester area,
In my experience, the problem is getting to take them. I had 8 days carried over from last year (normally it can only be a maximum of five, but covid increased it this year) and have only just used them up, so this year I expect to have10+ unused.

Re: Leave entitlement

Your employer is not entitled to exclude BH's from your quota, some include some don't.

Having an extra 8 days is nice but not always guaranteed.

Depending on council etc, and length of service it can vary but GOV.UK says...
"Almost all workers are legally entitled to 5.6 weeks’ paid holiday a year (known as statutory leave entitlement or annual leave). Most workers who work a 5-day week must receive at least 28 days’ paid annual leave a year"
Aslo...
"Bank or public holidays do not have to be given as paid leave. An employer can choose to include bank holidays as part of a worker’s statutory annual leave."

Re: Leave entitlement

I think the moral of the story here is that different counties or academies have different holiday entitlements.
If you are an academy check with your HR, otherwise check with your LA.
Good luck.

Re: Leave entitlement

It's normally 25 days rising to 30 after 5 years service, that's Bucks, Devon & Cornwall. I assume it's the same elsewhere.
