Holidays - Can you take them during term time?
I've tried to persuade the head to let me take my holidays during term time as we have so much work on this year. He's said no.
Just wanted to know how many full time IT people get to take their holiday during term time, thus freeing them up to do the ICT Projects during schools holidays.
Is my school way behind the time. I suspect it is.

I think I can apply to take a few days of my annual leave in term time but i've got to ask the head for it not just have it given. But I do understand exactly what you mean, being able to take say a week in term time instead of the holidays would be much better for a lot of us in some ways allowing for a good spell in the summer period for extended projects.

Work all term - Work all holiday.
Contracted for term time only but expected to work the holiday where needed (overtime claimed).
P.S. It's usually needed.

I can take my holiday when it suits me (as long as I've taken adequate precaution with the workload on my team).
I'm hoping to be off next week.

The three of us (all full time) can take holidays during term time, and do. SLT know that school holidays are/can be busy periods for IT techies. The only stipulation is that we don't leave the school without any IT cover when we book our holidays.

Have to take mine during school holidays, which is a real pain because flights are so much more expensive.

I have 26 days holiday a year to be taken during school holidays only. If I don't use them all, I can carry 5 over to the next year.

School Holidays only at present. Although I have been "chipping away" at line management and I think it may be an option very soon to take a few days during term time.

In my old job it was written into my contract that I couldn't take term-time leave other than in exceptional circumstances. Now I have an NM above me we can do, provided it's not ridiculous.

Same here, no problems as long as there is cover.

We're allowed to take 5 days per year in term time.

No. Only 1 of me here, so no chance of term-time holiday.
It's bad enough if I'm off ill, or on a course for a day...

all school holidays here. One or two days can be moved around to work in holidays if important I am sure. The others work normal hours/times and have holidays in term time.
I was going to make a post about this.
Anyone seen and clicked the advert on this website? Jeees...

I have just come back from a 2 week holiday in Mexico taken the 2 weeks school came back after Christmas. All i had to do was give a letter to the head and one for the governors, leave for a few months and get a nice letter back approving the time off. But there is a chance you could get a no. as said a few post back, you need to work out cover.

The issue here is you are probably employed under the same terms as teachers whonormally have to take leave during the holiday period with occasional special exceptions. Any leave taken during term time is normally processed as unpaid. To allow you, under the same contract, to take leave could set a precedent they don't want despite your position and responsibilities demanding different committments and responsibilities. Plus you are so important and critical to the day to day running of the school you can never possibly be allowed time off when they are there. If issues arise during holiday periods staff are not affected - your problem you sort it out before they return
