Strike Action by Teachers (members of NEU)
Strike Action by teachers who are members of NEU will be taking place on the following dates:
Wednesday 1st February
Thursday 2nd March
Wednesday 15th March
Thursday 16th March
We are not aware currently that any of our teaching staff will be taking strike action on 1st February or 2nd March, so all pupils are expected to attend school on those dates.
Whilst teachers do not have to inform the school of their intention to strike, we have had notification that a number of our teaching staff intend to strike on 15th and 16th March 2023. Unfortunately, this will leave the school with insufficient teaching staff on those dates to be able to remain open to all pupils. Therefore, we have had to take the decision to limit the number of pupils attending.
Wednesday 1st February All pupils to attend school
Thursday 2nd March All pupils to attend school
Wednesday 15th March Priority places – children of critical workers or vulnerable
Thursday 16th March Priority places – children of critical workers or vulnerable
To support us in planning, we are requesting you please inform the school if you are a critical worker who will be working and will therefore need a place on the 15th & 16th March.
Places in school will be given on a priority basis, starting with:
We will be writing to you separately to offer a place to your child if we believe they are in the vulnerable category.
If you are a critical worker and require a place, please inform the school by Friday 27th January.
Please email your child’s name and your role as a critical worker to email@example.com
Please be assured the school is doing everything possible to minimise the disruption to your child’s education and the inconvenience this may cause you. However, we need to balance the number of pupils in school with the staff available to be able to offer a safe environment.
