Hi, I have just got a new job and am due to start on Jan 2nd.

I wasn't asked at interview about any dates I might need off, and it has only just occurred to me that I will need 2 days off at the very end if jan to go to visit family abroad.

I will obviously call them ASAP on Monday to discuss it, but do you think it's likely they will honour this.

By the way, I am not teaching staff, but I will only be working term-time

Any advice much appreciated

IMO as you are non-teaching they will probably honour it (re-advertising/interviewing is expensive and they will want to keep you at this point). However, be aware you will have given yourself a bit of a hurdle to jump over- it will be down to you once you start to prove that this is a one off and you aren't a habitual slacker!

It will probably be unpaid leave.

just phone the head tomorrow and mention you have pre booked holiday and you assume they will honour them, it will be unpaid, its no big deal.
