Dear parents/ carers,
As you will probably be aware, next Wednesday 15th March and Thursday 16th March have been identified by the National Education Union (NEU) as the next days of industrial action in their pay and funding campaign.
Members of the NEU are not obliged to let us know in advance of their intentions, but our staff have been co-operative and kind enough to offer this information so that you know what our situation is and that if needed, you can make alternative arrangements for childcare for the day.
The classes so far where the teacher has given advance notice of strike action is:
Year 2, Class 7
Mrs Iveson will teach the class as normal on Wednesday morning and the children will have their lunch in school.
The teacher who is normally in class 7 on Wednesday afternoon will be taking strike action therefore the class will close at 1:15pm on Wednesday 15th March ONLY.
Please collect children from the classroom at 1:15pm.
Class 7 will be open as normal all day on Thursday 16th March.
Year 3, Class 8
This class will be closed to pupils on both Wednesday 15th and Thursday 16th March.
Year 3, Class 9
This class will be closed to pupils all day on Wednesday 15th March.
Year 4, Class 10
This class will be closed to pupils on both Wednesday 15th March and Thursday 16th March.
If there are any changes or any other teachers decide to strike we will let you know as soon as possible.
Staff appreciate the inconvenience the action will cause and for that send their apologies. We would like to assure our school community that this is not a decision our teachers have taken lightly.
