Dear parents & carers

Closure on Tuesday 5th July 2016

We have been informed by NUT Trade Union that there will be a day of strike action on Tuesday 5th July 2016. The dispute is with regards to demands for the Secretary of State for Education to ‘increase funding to schools and education, guarantee terms and conditions for teachers in all types of schools, and to resume negotiations on teacher contracts to allow workload to be addressed’.

The NUT has informed me that a number of their members will be on strike and therefore having assessed the operational issues in opening the school with significantly fewer staff, I have decided that the school will be closed to students on Tuesday 5 July 2016.

This decision has not been taken lightly and we regret having to take this action but feel that there will not be sufficient staff in school to ensure the safety and wellbeing of the children.

Our sincere apologies for the difficulties that these arrangements will cause parents/carers but unfortunately these are circumstances beyond our control. The school will open as normal on Wednesday 6th July 2016.

Yours sincerely

Dr S M Tranter

Executive Headteacher
