Summer Fridays and School closure days 2017/18

It has been confirmed that Summer Fridays will again be available this year, starting between 6 June and 29 September. This means that if you have worked your full week's contractual hours by Friday, you can leave at lunchtime.

Summer Fridays are subject to approval by your line manager and individuals are encouraged to use them across the summer, rather than accumulate them to be used at the end. Certain conditions do apply:

  • you can take up to four half days
  • you can only take them in weeks that are not booked as holiday
  • where this affects operational requirements there may be flexibility eg. allowing you to be in the office for nine days out of ten
