Headteacher’s update on teacher strike action

I’m sure you have all seen in the news reports that strike action has been confirmed for teachers.
The dates that affect our region are:

  • Wednesday 1st February
  • Thursday 2nd March
  • Wednesday 15th
  • Thursday 16th March

I am working with the staff to take all reasonable and appropriate steps to keep the school open for our most vulnerable children, SEND, disadvantaged, key worker children and children sitting upcoming external examinations on the above dates.

While there is no definite guarantee that we will not have to close, I will keep you updated as far in advance as I can, to enable you to make appropriate plans.

Other unions are also seeking to strike and therefore we should be aware there may be additional dates in the future.
