6 week summer hols
2 weeks Christmas
2 weeks Easter
1 week Oct Half term
1 week Feb half term
1 week June half term

13 weeks hols

52 weeks minus 13 weeks = 39 weeks

difficult to say unless we know how long the terms are really

but if you figure

2 weeks off at Xmas
1 week half-term
2 weeks off at Easter
1 week half-term
6 weeks off at Summer
1 week half-term

that's 13 weeks off, so that makes 39 weeks

(or have I missed a break?)

In our County schools are open for 190 teaching days (= 38 wks) + 5 inset days ... i.e. 39 wks.

DH is a teacher and we have a school term contract at DD's nursery, i knwo we pay for 42 weeks a year because we don't get half terms off!

OMG ...i work 2 days a week and i started work on the 10th of march 2005.... the child tax credits want to know how much i earnt between then and the 5th of april.... how mant days would that have been? Pretty please!

charliecat Fri 06-May-05 18:56:57

half term etc included. If ONLY i could find my calendar this would be easy

katzguk Fri 06-May-05 18:57:29

you should get a P60 through any day now which will give you the answer to that question

charliecat Fri 06-May-05 18:58:23

Argh and that will help with the tax credit too yeah?

katzguk Fri 06-May-05 18:59:06

plus if thats all the work you did last tax year send the said P60 off to your local tax office and they will very kindly send you a cheque for any tax you might have paid! i did this last year as i started work on the 1 st of march and onyl worked one month for the whole tax year and got all the tax back!
