NEU Strike Action
Dear Parents and Carers
Industrial Action – NEU
As has been reported in the media and press, the members of the National Education Union are taking industrial action on 1st February 2023. Members of the NEU employed by Hampshire County Council and who work in our school may therefore decide to take strike action on that date.
Whilst we will endeavour to remain open and operating as safely as normal, we will communicate any further updates to you in a timely manner. However, I need to advise you that this may not be until the day itself as staff legally do not need to disclose their intentions before the day of Industrial Action. Therefore, parents need to be prepared for any class closures. A decision to strike is never taken without long and hard consideration.
Please remember, that the Industrial Action is not an action aimed at school but a National strike aimed at the Government in response to the levels of frustration as a result of the prolonged underfunding of schools and the local community.
Any notification of closure or partial closure will be sent to all parents via Arbor, placed on our website and on the Hampshire County Council emergency closure website: https://www.hants.gov.uk/schoolclosures
Other dates currently planned for industrial action include:
Thursday 02 March 2023
Wednesday 15 March 2023
Thursday 16 March 2023
We appreciate you support at this time.
