tell me about it cardibach! My HT is pretty anti teachers' children and thinks we should somehow magic our family away while we are at school. Any time I have to take sick days for my dd they are unpaid, think thats pretty normal though.
Fingers crossed she is more reasonable about my appointment.
Yes, you are. In my school, however, I am not entitled to take my DD for hospital appointments without losing pay. I should send her over 2hours on a bus (if there was, inded a bus to catch which there won't be) on her own. THe only exception is if there is a general anaesthetic involved.
Thanks, I thought that was the case. I have a feeling that ht may suggest I swap days with my job sharer but that would cost us both quite a bit in extra child care since our childminders (quite understandably) will happily work extra days but won't swap days without extra charge.
