What is your school policy on this? I'm interested to know how ours compares. We get 2 days paid per year, the rest unpaid. We are moving to a MAT which offers no days paid.
I have 3 children and no family support, so that is less than one day per child. I would never aim to use it but sometimes it is unavoidable.

We also get 2 days paid

We get no days paid and with several children it's so difficult.

It is so difficult.

We get 1 day on full pay and 9 more days on something like £50/day per year. That's for each child and parent.

5 days paid for family care leave and 5 days paid extra personal leave that we can use at any time for any reason (but no more than two in a row)

Wow, huge variety! I was a bit naive I think. We were let down a lot by a childminder earlier this year. Then got hit with chickenpox. I was surprised to see unpaid leave deducted from my pay so checked the policy. Now my husband has checked his, and he gets no days. He isn't a teacher.
I guess the only answer for us now is to call in sick. We have no one else, and can't afford to be off again.
I was thinking of approaching my school to see if the policy could be changed to discretionary, but there is probanly no point.

Are your current conditions not being TUPEd over?

Yes. But I think I have missed a deadline. I don't undertand the process. We asked for our policies to be made clear. I read them and shared my thoughts with staff. Everyone says it's too late to change anything. We merge next month.

Your pay and conditions shouldn't be getting worse. You should talk to your Union.
