State or private?

The government doesn’t expect to furlough public sector workers.

You cant be furloughed retrospectivley. You have to sign and accept and the furlough starts from the next day. Anything else is fraud.

State schools have had specific advice from the DfE NOT to furlough staff including agency staff on a 'live' contract. Google it and you will find the info- it's freely available.
Also, speak to your union.
