Re: NEU Strike Action Days on Thurs 27th April and Tues 2nd May –
school closed to all pupils
Further to the text we sent you on Monday, this is to confirm that the school will be closed to all pupils next Thursday (27th April) and the following Tuesday (2nd May).
Please therefore do go ahead and make alternative arrangements for your child on those 2 days. I have informed Nottingham City, Nottinghamshire, and Derbyshire Education Transport Services.
For pupils who have Free School Meals (FSM), we have ordered a £5 voucher from Edenred, and you will receive this in the usual way. This is to cover both of these strike action days.
While your child is at home on those two days, please access the ‘Learning At Home’ tab on our website, where there are lots of ideas for a range of learning activities you can do with your child, using resources we hope you can find in the home. There are also stories and ‘how to’ videos you can watch, and past assemblies with lots of interesting topics for the pupils to learn about, linked to their curriculum work. You can access these learning activities here: Learning at Home
The school will remain open as usual for staff.
If there is any progress before next Thursday in terms of the national negotiations, I will of course inform you of this at the earliest opportunity.
The school will be open to all pupils on Friday 28th April.
