Important – PLEASE READ
Dear parents and carers,
On Monday the NEU (National Education Union) gave formal notification that they are taking industrial action. This is in connection with a formal dispute with the secretary of state for Education regarding teacher’s pay and conditions. There are four dates in total:
- Wednesday 1st February – Business Links day
- Thursday 2nd March – World Book day
- Wednesday 15th & Thursday 16th March.
Teachers who are members of the NEU may choose to strike on these dates. I will send out a letter on Tuesday 24th January regarding the first date: Wednesday 1st February. It’s our hope that we will be able to run Business Links day but I need to know the number of colleagues taking action before I can confirm this. We will do our best to keep the school open to all pupils on all dates but please understand that this may not be possible. Each date will be evaluated on a case by case basis as the number of colleagues taking action may vary. Pupil safety will be at the heart of all decisions.
If you are concerned or have any questions please do contact me.
Thank you for your support and understanding
