25 Jan Letter re possible Strike Action
Dear Parents and Carers,
RE: Possible Strike Action
You may be aware from recent media coverage that the teachers’ union, National Education Union,
have stated their intention to strike in the following months. This will affect London schools on the
- Wednesday 1 February 2023
- Thursday 2 March 2023
- Wednesday 15 March 2023
- Thursday 16 March 2023
The strike has been called because of a national dispute between the unions and the government
over teachers’ pay and how much the government allocates to school funding.
Each school will be managing the situation separately, depending on their staff. I am getting in touch
to give you as much notice as possible that learning may be disrupted on these dates and the school
may be closed to some or all pupils.
At the moment, no decision is able to be made about what will happen on these days at Pooles Park.
Just in case school is closed, we recommend that you consider alternative childcare arrangements
for these dates.
I will inform you of the final arrangements, as soon as possible, as to whether school will be closed.
I am sorry about the potential disruption to you and to your child’s education.
Thank you for your understanding in this matter.
