School Closed to Pupils on Wednesday

Dear Parents and Carers,

You may be aware that the National Education Union members (NEU) have met the threshold to legitimately strike on a number of days. The days identified for strike action locally are:-

Wednesday 1st February
Tuesday 28th February
Wednesday 15th March
Thursday 16th March

The Secretary of State for Education is in discussions with the teacher unions. However, agreement has not been reached and the strike action is planned to go ahead.

The strike action will significantly impact upon our school and the school will have to be closed to pupils on Wednesday 1st February. The only exception to this is for pupils who are due to attend one of the training providers, who, at this time, remain open.

As a school we regret any inconvenience this may cause, but we must respect that members of any professional association/union have the right to take this action following a legal ballot.

If you have any questions, please contact the school via the school office.

Best wishes,

Gregory Chiswell Headteacher
