Strike Letter July 10th 2014


Text in the document is as follows:

4th July 2014


Dear Parents / Carers,

In addition to the usual newsletter this week, I have some very important news to tell you.

As you may be aware, there is a planned day of industrial (strike) action next week by members of the NUT, UNISON, GMB and UNITE.

I have been informed that a significant number of staff intend to take industrial action next Thursday 10th July.

On the basis of this, after consultation with the Local Authority and the Chair of Governors:

I have made the decision to close the school to pupils next Thursday.

This decision to close the school has not been taken lightly, but in this instance, where staff have elected to take lawful industrial action, I have no choice, as having completed risk assessment procedures, I feel we will not be appropriately staffed that day.

I have also informed school transport about the decision – children will not be picked up on Thursday, but will be collected as normal on Friday.

If there are any changes to either the local or national situation, where we do not have to take this course of action, I will let you know as soon as possible.

I appreciate the inconvenience this may cause you at such short notice.

Yours sincerely

P McGill
