I have been notified by the National Union of Teachers (NUT) that their members will be staging a strike on Tuesday 5th July 2016. Unfortunately, this gives me no alternative but to close the school as a result of the industrial action.
19 members of the NUT will take part and I cannot cover all of their classes or activities. Most important of all is to ensure the safety of your child and there will be insufficient staff to supervise all of the students.
I am extremely sorry to have to notify you of the academy’s decision to close the school but the safeguarding of your child is our highest priority.
The academy will re-open as usual on Wednesday 6th July 2016.
Due to the industrial action on Tuesday 5 July the Year 8 girls HPV immunisations will have to be cancelled. They will now take place in September (date to be confirmed). If you wish your daughter to have the immunisation before then please ring the Immunisation Team on 0300 124 0366 and press option 1 so that a clinic appointment can be arranged otherwise you will receive a new date in September.
