1 July 2016

Dear Parent/Carer,

Industrial action by NUT on Tuesday 5 July

I am writing to let you know that many of our teachers who are members of the NUT will be striking on Tuesday 5 July as part of a national strike over school funding and teachers’ pay and conditions.

I regret to inform you that the school’s governors and our senior leadership team, after carrying out a risk assessment, have decided the school will be closed to years 7-11 on 5 July. Students in Y12 will attend if invited to do so by their class teachers, and a number of other events, including Y6 induction and rehearsals for the forthcoming production will still go ahead. Some students may be invited in for 1:1 meetings. 

The school will be open as normal on Wednesday 6 July. We apologise for the disruption caused.


Yours sincerely,


Nicholas John
