Industrial Action National Ballot  (5th July 2016)  – School Closure      

Letter to parents from Chair of Governors, school closed

Dear Parents and Carers


Industrial Action National Ballot  (5th July 2016)  – school closure   


As you have no doubt heard in the news, we have received confirmation that the NUT  have asked their membership to take part in strike action in relation to:


  • Cuts in school funding
  • Defence of national terms and conditions
  • A request for a national negotiating framework that allows teachers’ voices to be heard


As a result we have received notification that some teachers in both our schools will be taking part in strike action on 5th July 2016


Having carefully reviewed the implications of the strike on our staffing levels, we have taken the decision to close both schools on the 5th July 2016.  Parents are therefore asked to make alternative arrangements on this day and pupils should not report to school. 


Please note that we have been in close contact with The Hamble School, and transition arrangements for Yr6 REMAIN ON THE 5th JULY 2016


We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.  The school will re-open as normal on 6th July 2016, where Transition will occur for all children in years R to year 5. We have also arranged an exciting Forest Schools experience for yr6, please can they wear old clothes for that day! 


We will of course update you if any further changes occur
