I don't think you can ask for half fees for your holidays as you are taking them after the contract ends.

surley if the noticed period has ended you cant ask her for any fees?

I know where you're coming from though, she's had her half fees and you haven't had yours? Feels a bit unfair, perhaps have a re-think to see if you can prevent this happening in the future.... xx

If you allow parents so many weeks half fee holiday over a year and they have taken more than they have accrued before they are due to leave then in theory you could calculate the difference and add it to the fees due before the Contract ends and inform them when you reply to the notice letter. On the same basis you could work out you 'accrued, holiday to the time of the contract end and see if they will pay for it. If you have not written it into you fees policy as a calculation then if they pay good but if they won't you may not be able to insist.

May I ask why you give your parents half fee holidays? They will have paid holiday an if they choose not to go away when you are away and they are paying half fee then that is their choice.

I wouldn't charge but I would change my policy.

Full fees for their hols and free for mine. Works well for me :D
