Strike Action Update:
I previously informed you that I would let you know in advance of the implications of strike
action by members of the National Education Union as each date comes closer to enable you to inform your employers or to make childcare arrangements if necessary.
Pupils in Reception, Year 2, Year 3, Year 4 and Year 5 will be UNABLE to attend school on Wednesday 15th March and Thursday 16th March 2023.
The attached letter outlines the home learning that will be available to them and paper copies will be sent home to pupils in the affected classes, at the end of today.
Reception, Years 2, 3, 4 and 5 pupils who are eligible for a benefits related free school meal will be provided with a packed lunch style dinner that parent/carers can collect from school between 11.30am-12.30pm on Wednesday 15th & Thursday 16th March. The attached letter
asks parent/carers to let us know by Friday 10th March if they want a meal prepared for their child. If we don’t receive the reply slip from you, then we won’t order the food and make a packed lunch.
Pupils in Nursery, Year 1 and Year 6 will be ABLE to attend school as usual on Wednesday 15th & Thursday 16th March 2023.
If any pupils in these classes have a place at Breakfast club, then this will also be open from 8.00am.
After school clubs on Wednesday 15th & Thursday 16th March will be cancelled.
I’m sorry that you will have to make alternative arrangements for your child and that they will
experience disruption to their education. I understand that this situation may be frustrating, and ask that all members of our school community continue to treat each other with respect.
We are working closely with our local authority and union representatives to keep up to date
with the situation, and I will inform you as soon as possible if arrangements change further.
If you have any questions, please contact myself on your private dojo message or speak to
the staff in the office.
Thank you, Mrs Parker
