Trade Union Action
You will be aware that the Trade Union UNISON has called for Industrial Action on Wednesday 16th and Thursday 17th July - next Wednesday and Thursday. A number of members of staff at the school are members of UNISON, and have informed me that they will be on strike for those days. The school has carefully considered whether we can accommodate pupils in the absence of some key members of staff, and on Health and Safety reasons I have decided that the school will be closed for pupils on those days.
Pupils therefore will not attend on Wednesday 16th July and Thursday 17th July. The school will be open again on Friday 18th and all pupils are expected to attend on that day.
Paul B Smith, Headteacher.
