National Education Union (NEU) STRIKE ACTION – July 2023

Dear Parents/Carers

You will probably be aware from the news coverage that one of the teaching unions, have confirmed that two further days strike action will be taking place on Wednesday 5th and Friday 7th July. 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.

Like the previous strike days, staff who are members of this Union, may decide not to strike, or could strike for this day.

At Moreton School, this will mean that we may not be able to provide a statutory provision on the above date 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.

For Wednesday 5th July 2023, some areas of our provision will be affected and we will be closed to all pupils in Years 7, 8, and 10. A virtual challenge will be set for these students.

Years 9 and 12 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 (5th July).

For Friday 7th July 2023, some areas of our provision will be affected and we will be closed to all pupils in Years 8 and 9. A virtual challenge will be set for these students.

Years 7, 10 and 12 students will be expected to attend 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 (7th July).

We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause, but would like to thank you for your cooperation during difficult times. I will be writing to you later this week to update you on numerous developments at our school.

Yours sincerely,

Mr B. Dumayne

Headteacher
