Industrial action by the National Education Union
Strike Action, Wednesday, 1st February, 2023
I am writing regarding forthcoming industrial action by the National Education Union which you will likely have seen covered in the national media.
The National Education Union is the largest union of teachers in the UK. They have announced a programme of strike action which will disrupt many schools on the following dates: Wednesday 1st February (national day of action), Thursday, 2nd March (regional day of action), Wednesday 15th and Thursday 16th March (national days of action).
If the strike action is not called off, there could be an impact on our school operations on these dates. As you would expect, I am currently making plans regarding how Bishop Stopford’s School will respond on these strike days. It is my responsibility as Headteacher to provide the best education that I can and keep the school open for as many students as possible.
I will write to you again towards the end of the week with plans for Wednesday 1st February and will keep you fully updated going forwards.
