Leave

On this page you will find a range of information and resources regarding the various leave entitlements relevant to school employees.  This includes, but is not limited to, annual leave, time off for dependants, bereavement leave and time off for public duties.

There is a separate page for parental leave and pay which covers maternity, paternity, adoption, unpaid parental leave, shared parental leave and maternity support leave.

Members of the LGPS have the option to buy back any pension lost during periods of unpaid leave. This must be done within 30 days of returning to work after the period of leave and the cost is shared with the employer. To find out how much it would cost to buy back pension, employees should contact Employment Support Services on 01609 532190.
