    23 days a year, 3 have to be taken between christmas and new year. no holidays during term time, but as my youngest daughter is in year 10 that's no bad thing. I can carry 3 days forward but they have to be taken by the end of april.
    however, I was supposed to take my final 3 days of the year this half term week, but our office had to be stripped for a complete rewire/new data points, 4 it suites to be re-imaged, new telephone cable installed and 9 iwb's to be fitted, those 3 days have gone by the by. it hasn't been helped by staff and students coming in to do course work and wanting to use computers, health and safety issues, printers not working (the paper tray was sticking out - spotted it from 20 feet away) you can't have the money instead of the days off either.
    it must be friday.

    28 days plus an extra 5 for public holidays. Goes up to 32 + 5 after 5 years service. Got to be taken in holidays unless you have a very good reason.

    Re: Annual leave entitlement

    I get 20 days plus all the bank holidays and usually a few free days between Christmas and new year. Next year I'll get 25 for 5 years service. I also get time off for reserve forces activity no questions asked. My only gripe is that we can't take the holidays in term time which means expensive holidays.

    unless yo work part time then it is on pro rata as holiday is counted as four weeks of your normal working week for example if you wroked 3 days a week then you get 3 * 4 so get 12 days in total

    i remeber right that is...

    also working leas we get bank hols as extra which most companys doe but they dont have to basicly if school open on bak hol then you must go in... or take a days hol..

    but as most schools are close on bank hols...

    Ummmgh, well errrr

    Not quite sure how to put this, I dont go in at all over any holiday periods.
    The school where I am are pretty cool, I do extra hours when needed at the school, will often take the odd thing home to fix if I run out of time at the school.
    Its a swings and round abouts issue.

    Term time only +4 so get a fair bit off but my salary is prorated.

    As it happens with time off in lieu etc I get about 10 weeks off and only lose 2 weeks a year pay.

    I get a miserable 22 days annual leave, for 2.5 years service.
    From October 2007, all full-time employees were entitled to 24 days holiday a year (to include Bank Holidays) with some provisos.

    From April 2009, all full-time employees will be entitled to 28 days which again may include Bank Holidays.

    If you are only getting 22 days a year in total, your employer is breaking the law.

    I get 24 days plus Bank Holidays.

    I get basic 20 days + 12 stat / public holidays - this is for 2yrs service so far...

    after 5 yrs I get an extra 8 days I think (it used to be after 5 yrs you get 5 and after 10yrs you get another 3 but I think it's all given to you after 5yrs now)

    Thing is... I have another yrs service beforehand but unfortunately as I had to leave & return to uni that yr doesn't carry over.

    I always carry over at least 5 days into the next leave year - I'm encouraged to only take holiday during school holidays - but management here are very good with anything that crops up during term time.

    30 days from day 1 plus bank holidays. I believe this will increase after 3 years service. Supposed to be taken during school holidays but fairly flexible with odd days in term time. Have to use 5 days over Christmas break.

    You mean you don't all get the school holidays off?
