Dear Parent/Carer

INDUSTRIAL ACTION Thursday 27th April 2023

I am writing to give you advance notice of the impact of the action on this school.

The decision to close the school or send pupils home is never taken lightly, but in this instance, where staff have elected to take lawful industrial action, I will have no choice but to take appropriate steps to ensure the health, safety and wellbeing of all pupils.

Therefore, the school will be closed to all pupils except for;

Y10 pupils who have a timetabled Practice Exam. All Y10 pupils have a Chemistry exam that will begin at 8.00am on the Cantley site. Many students then have exams in one of Art, Photography, Hospitality, Business, Geography or History. These exams will begin at 10.15am and end at different times with the latest at 12.15. All Y10 pupils must attend their timetabled practice exams. Failure to attend will result in no mark being recorded.  However, they will be able to leave at the end of their exam(s). Pupils needing to remain on site for school buses will be provided with a quiet study space so they can study/revise - they will need to bring their own work.

Y11, Y12 and Y13. Attendance is compulsory for these Year Groups.

Y11 students should line up in forms in the yard outside Acacia Road Hall. After an extended assembly, they will have a timetable given to them for the day.
