Teachers’ Strike Action

Wednesday 29th May

After careful consideration, the Board has decided that, due to the unavailability of staff, it would be impracticable for students to attend school for instruction during the period of the proposed strike.

In these circumstances, it would assist the Board if the students are able to remain at home.

Otherwise the school will provide supervision for any students who do attend school during the strike. Students who do attend will be assigned to groups to be in supervised in study for the day. Activities will not be planned for the day. Students attending school are to meet in the Hall at 8.40am to be allocated to study groups. Their attendance will be marked each period, and normal school procedures and rules apply for the day. The canteen will not be open, and so students attending school that day must bring their own food for break times.

I appreciate that this is inconvenient for parents and students alike, but please be assured that student safety is our main concern. Thank you for your understanding.
