NEU Industrial Strike Action - 5th & 7th July 2023

On Saturday 17th June 2023 The National Education Union (NEU) announced that its ballot of teacher members in England has met the thresholds required to commence industrial action on the following dates;

• Wednesday 5 th July 2023

• Friday 7th July 2023

Head Teachers can ask teachers if they plan to strike, however teachers do not have to respond.

I am confident that the teachers at the Good Shepherd will communicate their intentions over the days ahead. I would therefore ask parents to make a note of the dates above and begin to formulate a plan in the event that we are not able to open classes on the days that there is strike action.

I understand how concerning this may be for all parents and we will do everything that we can to give as much notice as possible in the event of ‘partial’ or ‘whole’ school closure.

When I receive further guidance and information, I shall let you know.

Yours sincerely,

Mrs C Dodds Headteacher
