Further Strike Action
Further strike action planned for Wednesday 1st March
Following on from previous communication, teacher members of the National Education Union (NEU) have voted to strike. The second strike in our region will be taking place on Wednesday 1st March.
Other strike days are also planned for:
- Wednesday 15th March
- Thursday 16th March
Arrangement for Wednesday 1st March 2023
As members of teaching staff who are taking part in the strike action are not required to let their school know in advance, it makes it difficult for us to judge the impact this action will have on our school. To support our children, and in line with Department for Education Guidance, we are doing our very best to keep our school open for as many children as possible. The plan for the day is as follows:
Who should attend on Wednesday 1st March?
All students from the following Year Groups should attend:
- Year 11 Year 12 Year 13
- All children deemed vulnerable according to our safeguarding and special needs team. If your child is in this category we will be in touch with you before Wednesday.
Who should not attend and what should they do?
With the exception of those deemed vulnerable, students from the following Year Groups should not attend:
- Year 7 Year 8 Year 9 Year 10
Children in these Year Groups should access learning activities set for them on the Edulink homework section. This will all be in place for you by Tuesday.
Following this day strike, we will review the arrangements for the next strike days and I will inform you of these days accordingly.
Students entitled to Free School Meals
Food will be available for all attending year groups in school as normal. All children in non-attending year groups entitled to receive a free school meal will be able to do so on Wednesday 1st. Should you wish to collect a packed lunch on that day please come to reception between 1200 and 1300 and one will be provided.
Thank you in advance for your patience and understanding. I hope you can see we are trying our best to provide education for the day and will continue to do so through this difficult period of industrial action.
Should you have any queries please contact your students Head of Year.
