School Decisions for Teacher Industrial Action on Wednesday 1st February 2023

Tuesday 24th January 2023

Dear Parent/Carer,              




Further to my previous communication, I can now advise you of the school’s decision in relation to our ability to open on the day of the industrial action (strike action).


On Wednesday 1st February 2023, the school will:



  • Open partially to certain classes


Classes that will be open are - Class 1, 3, 4, 5, 7, 12 and 13


Classes that will be closed are - Class 2, 6, 8, 9, 10, 11 and 14


This decision has been based on a full risk assessment and the information available at this point.


This decision may have to change on the day of action if there is sickness absence or a picket line at school that employees have decided not to cross. As I’m sure you understand, we will be unable to advise you of this in advance and we may need to update parents and carers on the morning of the action to advise of any closure. If this occurs we will aim to do this as soon as possible before the start of the school day.


We will continue to update you about the impact for the future dates, nearer the time of them taking place. As a reminder, the dates planned for future Industrial action are:


  • Tuesday, 28th February 2023
  • Wednesday, 15th March 2023
  • Thursday, 16th March 2023


If you have any questions, please direct these to the school office via email at


We will write to you again as soon as we have further information.


Yours sincerely

Mrs C Dunne
