INDUSTRIAL ACTION – Tuesday 5th July 2016

3rd July 2016

Dear Parent/Carer

 

INDUSTRIAL ACTION – Tuesday 5th July 2016

 

The National Union of Teachers (NUT) representing some teachers in schools have voted to take industrial action in the form of a one-day strike on Tuesday 5th July 2016.

 

We respect the teachers’ right to take this action in the dispute they have with the Department of Education.  However, we recognise that this will be disruptive to students’ education and can create problems for parents and carers.  We will therefore try our best to minimise any disruption to the normal function of the academy.

 

The disruption created by this strike day, and the need to have regard to the health and safety of pupils, has been assessed and as a result, after due consideration, the decision has been made to remain open and we are satisfied there is no risk to pupils’ welfare.

 

Yours faithfully

 

 

Mel Hewitt

Head of Academy
