Industrial Action, Tuesday 5th July

As I am sure you will be aware, the National Union of Teachers is planning to take industrial action on Tuesday 5th July 2016 over the impact of funding cuts on teacher contracts, workload and children’s education. This is a dispute between NUT members and the government, it is not a dispute with the school.

The action, a one day strike, will result in class or whole school closures across the country.

The decision to close the school and / or send pupils home is never taken lightly, but in this instance, where staff have elected to take lawful industrial action, I have no choice but to take appropriate steps to ensure the health, safety and wellbeing of all pupils.

We know that class / school closures inconvenience parents and carers and so I am writing to give you advance notice of the likely impact of the action on this school.

Please see below for a list of classes affected.

Thank you for your patience and understanding.

Yours sincerely,

Karen Fowler
