Holiday entitlement / xmas
For those of you that are Full Time 52wks...
...Assuming you get your 22 or 28 days holiday allocation, what happens at Christmas time?
Essentially I want to find out if the school is "closed for all staff", does that time (minus the statutory public holidays) come out of your entitlement?
Example: End of term = December 19th, Start of term Janurary 4th. Total of 10 weekdays, but 7 minus the three statutory puclic holidays. Do you then have to take 7 days out of your holiday entitlement?
My reason for asking is basically because I can't quite grasp the concept of having an entitlement yet being forced to take days out of what you are entiteled to! I'm hoping your replies will help me understand either way!)
