Industrial Action: Wednesday 15 & Thursday 16 March 2023

Further to my letter of 26 January, you will be aware that Wednesday 15th March and Thursday 16th March are the third and fourth days of the national strike action planned by the National Education Union (NEU).

At this stage we are planning a similar model to the previous days in prioritising our examination groups to have time with staff that are in school. If possible we will invite students from other year groups too.

Further details about the exact content of the day and the work set will be sent to each year group by Tuesday 14 March 2023. In the meantime please assume the arrangements will be as per the previous strike days i.e The school will be open to as many students in Years 11 and 13 as possible. We will not be offering a usual timetable to students, instead we hope to be running intervention and examination preparation sessions.

Students expecting examination results for Vocational examinations will be able to collect their results - more details of this will come next week. Students eligible for free school meals who are not required in school will be issued with a food voucher which can be used in major supermarkets. For those students in school, catering will continue as normal. 

We appreciate that industrial action is disruptive and you may need to change your plans or working arrangements whilst this action is ongoing. If the strike action is called off then we will confirm this as soon as we have been notified and, in this eventuality, the school will be open as usual to all students.

Yours faithfully

Daniel Hatley
