Industrial Strike Action 2013

4th October 2013

2nd October 2013


Dear Parent/Carer

As you will be aware from the media, the combined teacher and school leadership trade unions will be taking industrial action on October 17th 2013

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

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

We are aware 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.

If the action goes ahead, the following arrangements will be in place:
School will be open for Reception, Years 1, 2 and 3.

School will be closed to Year 4

Thank you for your patience and understanding.

Yours sincerely

Mrs A. Rutherford
