Teacher Strike Action

Dear Parents/Carers,


You will probably be aware from media coverage that the National Education Union (NEU) have declared strike action, which will take place on 1st February and 1st March. The strike is happening because of a national dispute between the unions and the government over pay.

I am getting in touch to give you as much notice as possible that learning may be disrupted on these dates and we recommend that you start to make alternative childcare arrangements for these dates in the event that you need it. I am sorry that there may be potential disruption to you and to your child’s education.


We are working closely with our staff union representatives to keep up to date with the situation, and I will keep you informed as and when I know more.

If you do have any questions, please feel free to chat with me at the end of the school day, or to Mrs Hedges in the mornings.


Best wishes,

Mrs Seymour
