NEU Strike Action – April and May 2023

Dear Parents/Carers

You will probably be aware from the news coverage that one of the teaching unions the National Education Union (NEU), have balloted their members and confirmed that further strike action will be taking place on two dates in April and May this year. This is a national dispute with the Government and is therefore not confined to our school or Wolverhampton alone. The industrial action (strike) may result in classes or whole schools closing across the United Kingdom.

The dates for the industrial action (strike) are:

  • Thursday 27th April 2023: all eligible members in England and Wales
  • Tuesday 2nd May 2023: all eligible members in England and Wales

Staff who are members of this Union, may decide not to strike, or could strike for one or all of these four days.

At Moreton School, this will mean that we may not be able to provide a statutory provision on the above dates for all Year Groups. The decision to close the school to all or some groups of children is never taken lightly. However, where staff have elected to take lawful industrial action, we have to consider very carefully if we are able to make suitable arrangements to ensure the health, safety and well-being of children throughout the day. I would like to consider each day (of the strikes) on an individual basis to ensure that we can provide the best possible provision.

For Thursday 27th April 2023, some areas of our provision will be affected and we will be closed to all pupils in Years 7, 8, 9 and 10.

Years 11,12 and 13 students, will be expected to attend school as normal and our Wellbeing Team will contact our identified students (in other Year groups) to arrange provision. I would therefore advise you to make contingency plans for your child’s care arrangements on the above date (27th April).

We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause, but would like to thank you for your cooperation during difficult times. We will monitor the situation closely and make appropriate decisions on the other day and ensure that we communicate with you in a timely fashion.

Yours sincerely,

Mr. B. Dumayne

Headteacher
