I believe you won't get paid, unless the school have said they are keeping you on? Otherwise your pay ends when the teacher returns from maternity..

No pay if you were at my school sorry.

when I took on a maternity post (it was made permanent) I asked this question at the interview. I was to be paid over summer as that is your holiday entitlement per rata.

This happened to me. I was kept on permanently but my new contract started on the 1st of September so I didn't get paid sad. Happens a lot in our place. Maybe I'll get my own back one day.

Even if you're kept on, you won't bed paid over the summer.

No, because - as you are on supply, you get an annual salary, divided into 195 days. A teacher on a permanent contract gets the same annual salary (if you were on the same grade) divided into 12 equal months.

So - say there were 20 days in March you taught, you'd have been paid more for the month of March (20 / 195th of the salary...around about 1/10th) than the permanent teacher, who will have been paid her monthly salary (ie 1/12th of the total for the year).

So, you don't get paid for the holidays, because you get paid more during term time. Balances out across the year.

Of course, this doesn't work as well since the rip off agencies have started paying lower rates, but that is how it was originally worked out.

I was in this exact position and assumed I wouldn't, so I was very surprised when a pay slip arrived for August. I even rang the council to say they'd made a mistake - but they hadn't! So in some circumstances you will :-)
