We have been notified by the NEU of proposed strike action on 1st March in relation to a national dispute over pay. Further strikes may also be held on 15th and 16th March which are still to be confirmed.
Our school takes the education of your children very seriously and will endeavour to ensure that the school remains open. An assessment will be conducted to ascertain whether it is safe for the school to operate on the proposed strike days.
I, therefore, feel it is appropriate to notify you that you should plan for alternative arrangements for childcare, should this be required, in the event that the school has to close to all or certain classes. I will write to you again to confirm the situation as soon as the assessment has been concluded.
