Important dates and industrial action update

I hope you are all well and ready for the weekend.

Industrial action

You may be aware from the news that the National Education Union (NEU) have balloted members and they now have a mandate for industrial action. They haven’t formally declared strike action but it is expected. There will be 7 days of strikes and 4 days for individual members.

The date for our region are:

  • Wednesday 1st February 2023
  • Wednesday 1st March 2023
  • Wednesday 15th March 2023
  • Thursday16th March 2023

I am currently liaising with staff to determine the impact this may have on our school. NEU members are not obliged to declare if they intend to strike or not. If a teacher in the NEU is taking strike action, the class will close on one, some or all of the dates above.  Our NEU members fully understand the difficulties associated with classes closing and they will give as much notice as possible. 

I will share further information with parents and carers at the earliest opportunity.
