Term-time Employment Contract


This Term-time Employment Contract is designed for use by Companies and Employers who wish to employ or retain staff to work during school term times. This is particularly useful where Employers wish to retain valued employees who are looking for a different work – life balance.

Employers must provide workers and employees with a written
statement of their main terms and conditions of employment and this is often
known as a Standard Form Section One Statement.

This Term-time Employment Contract covers the requirements of a Standard Form Section One Statement. From 6 April 2020, there are new rules on what must be included in a written statement for new starters and pre-existing employees will be able to request a written statement that complies with the new rules.  This contract complies with these requirements and must be provided to the employee or worker by day one of employment.

This contract is designed for use in respect of employees who work full-time during term time. Simply-Docs also offers a Term-time Working Policy.

For employees working part time or flexible hours, see the ‘Annualised Hours Employment Contract’ or ‘Flexi-Time Employment Contract’.

This contract provides that the employee’s salary will be paid in equal instalments over the year. There is also a provision for a specific amount to be set out in respect of paid statutory holiday entitlement. This point is to clarify that holiday pay has not been rolled up, a practice that is not allowed under the Working Time Regulations.
