TEACHERS’ INDUSTRIAL ACTION THURSDAY 17 OCTOBER
I wrote to you recently to make you aware of proposed joint strike action being carried out across the south-west region by the National Union Of Teachers (NUT) and the National Union of Schoolmasters and Union of Women Teachers (NASUWT). The strike is now going ahead and will affect the school. I have consulted our Chair of Governors and together we have decided to fully close the school on the day for health and safety reasons.
This action will mean that Pomphlett Primary School will be closed next Thursday, 17th October to ALL children. Parents should make alternative arrangements for the care of their child(ren) on that day. School will re-open to children as normal on Friday 18th October.
We regret any inconvenience caused to parents and carers but hope everyone understands this action is part of a nationally coordinated programme of industrial action in opposition to the government’s policies regarding teachers’ Pay and Pensions.
