I need to work out if I qualify for maternity allowance as a TA. I'll have worked from week 10 to week 37 if all goes well. However, in that time frame, some weeks will be the school holidays. As a TA I'm technically employed term time only but I'll have been contracted over those weeks, and we don't get other paid holidays within the term time.
How will this work for maternity allowance? I think I'll have had 6 weeks of school holidays in the 27 week period if I calculate correctly. Will this still count as having worked for 26 weeks?
