Is the leave year the calendar year or the academic year?
The leave year is the calendar year.
What is a reasonable amount of notice when informing my line manager of my intention to take my annual leave?
Usually it is expected that members of staff should give their line manager notice of at least twice the length of the period of leave to be taken. In some rare cases, operational reasons may necessitate that leave cannot be granted at the preferred time.
Can I carry over my annual leave?
Up to five days' leave may be carried over from one year to the next (pro rata for part-time staff). Agreement to carry over more than this is usually given only when there are strong personal reasons or when school business has prevented staff from taking leave.
