As you will be aware, there is industrial action taking place by teaching staff in the NEU on Wednesday 1st March. At this time, I can advise you that it is highly likely that the classes that were closed last time, will also be closed on this occasion.
Please remember this is subject to change as teachers are entitled to change their decision. I will communicate any changes to you in as timely a manner as I am able.
Today I have received guidance from the DfE regarding Critical Workers during this industrial action. This is something I had been concerned about, as I'm aware we have a vast number of critical worker parents and I was concerned I could end up unable to safely staff all critical worker children. However, the guidance today seeks to "particularly emphasise the importance of providing places for children of NHS staff and emergency services to protect essential public services." If this applies to you and you would like to discuss this, I would ask that you email me over half term in order that I can plan for a safe strike day.
With best wishes,
Miss E Wilson
