Industrial Action - NUT

Dear Parents/Carers


You may be aware from the media that there will be the above union taking industrial action on Tuesday 5th July 2016. This will affect some but not all staff in school.

When industrial action is taken we are required by the Local Authority to try to keep the school open or partially open if possible, so that there is minimal disruption to the children’s education.

I have agreed with my Chair of Governors that Woodchurch Road Primary School will be partially closed on the planned day of action.

Children in these classes are to come into school as normal :-                       

FG                      FH                   FW              KS1M            KS1W                 3C                 3R/W 4H                      4R                   5M                  5N                              

Children in these classes are to stay at home on the 5th July:

KS1J/R              KS1B             KS1H              KS1S              5O                  6C                  6V

This decision has not been taken lightly and I fully appreciate the difficulties some parents may have if they have one child in school and another not in school. I have no alternative but to partially close the school on Tuesday 5th July, as we are not able to cover for striking staff, and I am sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.

School will be open as normal on Wednesday 6th July.  This is Induction Day and all Year 6 pupils should attend their allocated secondary school.

Thank you for your patience and understanding.
