Second Day Of Strike Action

Dear Parent / Carer,


You will be aware that the National Education Union (NEU) have called a day of industrial action on Tuesday 28th February 2023


A number of our employees are members of the NEU and as such we are likely to be affected by the industrial action. The governing body, with myself, has therefore undertaken a risk assessment for the school to assess safeguarding and the children’s safety in the absence of key staff members.  Consequently, on the strike day, a partial closure will occur with only some classes closed.


The closed classes are:

  • Nursery
  • Reception
  • Year 1
  • Year 5


(There are learning activities available on the school website for the Reception, Year 1 and Year 5 classes.)


All other classes will be open and children in these classes will be expected to attend school as normal.  The open classes are:

  • Year 2
  • Year 3
  • Year 4
  • Year 6 


Please note changes to the above may occur between now and up to morning of the strike action and I advise you accordingly in the event of this.


Additional dates have been proposed for further strike action.  These are: Wednesday 15th March and Thursday 16th March.  I will advise parents on the potential impact of these days nearer the time. 


If you have any queries or require further information please do not hesitate to contact the school.
