Industrial Action 26 March 2014

Posted by on Mar 13, 2014 in News | No Comments

Dear Parent/Carer,

I am writing to let you know that as a result of planned industrial action by the National Union of Teachers it will be necessary to close community school for years 7, 8 and 9 on Wednesday 26th March.

We have done everything we can to keep the school open for years 10, 11, 12 and 13 but please be advised that not every lesson will be delivered as normal on that day.  If a teacher is taking Industrial Action on that day, and a student in years 10-13 would normally have them, they will be directed to a supervised study room and be expected to use the time to prepare for forthcoming examinations or complete homework/coursework as required.

Unfortunately, the Teaching Unions are still in dispute with the government over changes to pension arrangements and working conditions, hence their decision to undertake industrial action at this time.

Please be advised that transport arrangements will be as normal for students in years 10, 11, 12 and 13 on 26th March 2014.

Yours faithfully,

Mrs I Bryce
