Tuesday 24th January 2023
Dear Parent / Carer,
You may be aware that the National Education Union (NEU) have called a day of industrial action on Wednesday 1st 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:
- 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
Additional dates have been proposed for further strike action. These are: Tuesday 28th February, 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.
