Term-time Working Policy


Term-time working is a form of flexible working whereby an employee remains on a permanent employment contract but has the right to take unpaid leave of absence during the school holidays.

This Term-time Working Policy references the Flexible Working Policy, in respect of the process for applying for a flexible working arrangement.

Employers should be aware that term-time workers are protected under the Part-Time Workers (Prevention of Less Favourable Treatment) Regulations. This means that employees who are on a term time working basis are entitled to the same terms and conditions as full time employees, on a pro rata basis.

Employers should be aware that, for leave years starting on or after 1 April 2024, they will be able to use “rolled-up holiday pay” for term-time workers. “Rolled-up holiday pay” refers to a practice whereby the employer pays the employee an additional amount on top of their normal hourly rate of pay, with the additional amount intended to represent holiday pay, instead of the employee taking the time off at the time they receive the payment.

This Term-time Working Policy contains the following sections:

1. Introduction 
2. Eligibility 
3. Procedure 
4. Salary Arrangements 
5. Annual Leave 
6. Work During School Holiday Periods 
7. Terminating the Term Time Working Arrangement
