Industrial Action by NUT (National Union of Teachers)

The NUT (National Union of Teachers) have voted to take strike action in our region on Wednesday 26 March 2014.

Due to the number of staff in the union involved I have decided to close the Academy to Years 7, 8, 9 & 10 as I am unable to guarantee sufficient staff to operate safely, however, The Academy will be open for Years 11, 12 & 13 and students will be expected to attend as normal so that they can continue to prepare for their exams. Unfortunately there will be no school bus (Bennetts service) on this day.

Whilst I regret the disruption to working parents and carers we hope to minimise the impact on the students’ learning. Staff will remind students of internet sites and homework activities that should be undertaken for the day.

Please check your ParentMail account for information on this day. Thank you.
