The council recognises that there will be times when employees may require special leave to undertake obligations or attend events outside of their working life.
Teachers & Associated Professionals special leave information can be found here.
While it is expected that there will be instances where such responsibilities/events can be supported through the use of annual leave or flexible leave, this policy explains the additional support which may be available.
This policy should be read in conjunction with the council’s Smarter Working Policy, Managing Attendance Policy and Special Leave Guidance Note.
