STRIKE DAYS 5th July & 7th July 2023

28th June 2023

Dear Parents/Carers,


We are writing to confirm the position of Ward Green Primary School on the WEDNESDAY 5TH JULY 2023 and FRIDAY 7TH JULY 2023 when the NEU Teaching Union is planning strike action.

A number of our Teachers who are NEU members are following union advice and will be taking part in the planned strike action on WEDNESDAY 5TH JULY 2023 and FRIDAY 7TH JULY 2023.

Therefore, please see below of confirmation of which classes will be CLOSED on the above dates:

CLASSES CLOSED – FS1 AM and PM Nursery, FS2 Reception both classes, Year 1 both classes, Year 2 both classes, Year 3 both classes and Year 4 (Miss Cryer) ONLY class

School will be OPEN as normal for the following classes on the above dates:

CLASSES OPEN – Year 4 (Miss Mendil) ONLY class, Year 5 both classes and Year 6 both classes

Sports Day will still take place on the morning of WEDNESDAY 5th July 2023 for the children in school on that day. However, Miss Cryer’s Sports Day will now take place on the afternoon of TUESDAY 4TH JULY 2023.

We appreciate that the industrial action will cause significant disruption to the learning of our children and young people and that families will have to make alternative arrangements for childcare during these days if your child’s class is closed on these dates. We are sorry for the inconvenience this will cause.

Kind regards.

Mrs M Binns
