Ensuring all children feel happy, safe and loved

1st February - Strike Information

Dear families, as I mentioned last week the NEU teaching union has balloted their members to strike for the first time in 15 years. We have teachers throughout school who are members of the NEU who are in dispute with the government over pay and school funding. As the CEO of Valour schools I respect colleagues democratic right to strike or not strike ,whilst trying to keep disruption for our pupils and families to a minimum. On Wednesday 1st February the school will be open to all pupils with the exception of Nursery. In my opinion the strikes are not likely to be called off but if they are we will let Nursery parents know immediately.


Kindest regards

Dame Nicola Stephenson DBE
