You may have seen in the media that the NEU have decided to continue strike action, with the next strike days being planned for Thursday 27th April and Tuesday 2nd May 2023, and I want to give you some advance notice about the arrangements for the day.
Based on the amount of staff who belong to the NEU we are having to limit the amount of students we have in school on the day of the strike, with priority being given to those year groups who are due to sit public exams along with our younger students.
I would be grateful if you would check the arrangements listed below carefully in how it relates to your son or daughter.
Thursday 27th April 2023:
The following year groups will attend school as normal from 8.45am until 3.15pm: Year 13, Year 12, Year 11 and Year 8.
The following students should attend for part of the day from 8.45am to 2pm: All Year 10 students as they are sitting their Pre Public Exams. These Pre Public Exams are the first time Year 10 have ever sat practice GCSE papers and it is very important that your son or daughter attends.
Tuesday 2nd May 2023:
The following year groups will attend school as normal from 8.45am until 3.15pm: Year 13, Year 12, Year 11 and Year 7.
All other year groups unfortunately cannot be accommodated in school on the day, however homework is available online as usual.
Catering arrangements will be as usual on the day. If your son or daughter is not due to be in school on the day but is in receipt of free school meals they may attend in uniform at lunchtime from 1.30pm to claim their usual lunch. However, if you would like your child to claim their free school meal we will need you to inform the school office by Tuesday evening so that we can cook enough food, and they must register in and out at the office when they arrive and leave.
Should you have any questions then please don’t hesitate to contact the school office.
