I joined my firm in November. I understand pro-rata holiday balance, but apparently they also pro-rata Bank Holidays, is this normal?

For example, I have 25 annual leave and 9 bank holiday allocation this year but I’m getting pro-rata for both. So my total pro rata balance is 22 normal vacation + 8 bank days. Effectively losing a day of normal vacation because my bank day allocation has been reduced.
