Industrial Action – Wednesday 15th March and Thursday 16th March 2023
The NEU has formally notified employers that strike action will take place on Wednesday 15th March and Thursday 16th March in relation to a national dispute over pay.
Whilst we will make every effort to open the whole school on the day, indications are that Berridge will need to close some classes. Having assessed the impact and potential risks, and after consultation with the Chair of Governors, I have decided to close certain classes on Wednesday 15th March and Thursday 16th March.
Wednesday 15h March classes in Reception and Year 1 will be closed.
Thursday 16th March classes in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 will be closed .
The rest of the school is open (including Nursery) and will operate as normal.
If your child is in Reception, Year 1 or Year 2 and is entitled to free school meals then we can arrange for the kitchen to make a packed lunch for the strike days. These will need to be collected on the morning of the strike from school. Please contact the school office on 0115 9155851 by Monday 13th March to order the packed lunches. All the other years groups will have a hot meal service as normal on both days.
School will be open to all children on Friday 17th March.
Mr J Tee
