Ensuring all children feel happy, safe and loved

15th & 16th March - Strike Day Closures

 8th March 2023


Dear Families,

You may be aware that the next day of industrial action for National Education Union members is due to take place on 15th & 16th March.

Although we are working hard to minimise the disruption to our children, we will have no alternative but to close NURSERY, RECEPTION and YEAR 5 on both days.

The unions are in talks with Government in an attempt to reach an agreement around improved school funding and pay for teachers. If they make further progress and the industrial action is called off, I will of course let you know.

If your child is in one of the above year groups and is entitled to a free school meal, you will be emailed a FSM voucher via evouchers for the total of £5.00 to cover both days.

Thank you for your ongoing support. I will be in touch should there be a change to the arrangements outlined above.

Mrs. A. Oliver
Head Teacher
