Strike Action

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:

  • 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 


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.


Yours faithfully


Andy Renwick
