Dear parent/carer

Re: Teachers’ Strike – Thursday 2nd March 2023

Following on from my letter last week, the school will be closed for students in Years 7, 8, 9, 10 and 12 on Thursday 2nd March due to strike action. Students in these year groups are expected to maintain a routine and use this day as an opportunity to complete any outstanding homework and pre-learning activities for lessons. A list of useful learning resources can be found here –

Details regarding the arrangements for students in Year 11 and 13 will be circulated. In addition, those students we feel would benefit from additional study support on this day will be invited in. If you have not been contacted, please do not send your child in to school on this day.

Free School Meals

Those students in Years 7, 8, 9, 10 and 12 who are on free school meals are able to collect a packed lunch after school on Wednesday 1st March at 3.00pm from reception. If your child is eligible for free school meals and will be collecting a packed lunch please complete the following form – Please ensure the packed lunch is kept refrigerated until consumed.

Further strike days are anticipated for the 15th and 16th March 2023. It is likely that the same arrangements will be in place for these dates, however I will write to you closer to these dates with an update.

Yours sincerely,

Paul Woods
