Industrial Action 27th June 2013

You may be aware that the NASUWT and the NUT unions have balloted their members for industrial action. The dispute is in connection with the changes proposed to the teachers’ pension schemes, workload, conditions of service including pay and pay progression and job loss.

The school has received notification that the above trade unions, which represent teachers within the school, intend to take industrial action on Thursday 27th June 2013.

As staff within the school are members oif these unions the school will be affected by industrial action.

We will be writing to you again early next week to let you know which classes are affected and whether the school is fully open or partially open.

You will need to consider what provisional childcare arrangements you may need to make should this be the case and your child’s class is affected.

We will undertake a risk assessment and would like to assure you that we will be endeavouring to open the school as normal.

The decision will be made early next week when we have more information regarding which members of the teaching staff are going to take industrial action.
