Teachers' Industrial Action - update for parents

Dear Parents, 

As you may know, the National Education Union (NEU) has today announced that its ballot of teacher members in England has met the thresholds required to commence industrial action. The ballot of support staff members in England failed to achieve the 50% turnout required by law.

The NEU has announced national and regional action in England on the following dates:

  • Wednesday 1 February 2023: all eligible members in England and Wales.
  • Tuesday 28 February 2023: all eligible members in the following English regions: Northern, North West, Yorkshire & The Humber.
  • Wednesday 1 March 2023: all eligible members in the following English regions: East Midlands, West Midlands, Eastern.
  • Thursday 2 March 2023: all eligible members in the following English regions: London, South East, South West.
  • Wednesday 15 March 2023: all eligible members in England and Wales.
  • Thursday 16 March 2023: all eligible members in England and Wales.

Some parents have understandably begun to ask whether school will be affected on the relevant days. I completely understand that due to parents' work, there is a need for a prompt answer. 

I will be speaking with the necessary staff today and will aim to inform parents about any potential disruption to school by tomorrow. 

Your patience is very much appreciated. 

Kind regards,

Miss E Wilson
