Church Hill closed Thursday 2nd March
Dear Parents and carers, re NEU Industrial Action
23rd February 2023
Dear Parents and carers,
NEU Industrial Action
You may have seen in the news that some teachers have voted to strike across a number of different dates over the coming weeks. This action is not caused by any argument with Church Hill Nursery School but is centred on a dispute over pay, which is set by National Government.
The next strike date that will impact upon Church Hill Nursery School will be Thursday the 2nd of March, 2023.
After discussion with our governing body and a risk assessment on our legal duties of care we have collectively decided that, unfortunately, we will have to close to all children on this day. We are sorry for the inconvenience this causes you. As we will not have a qualified teacher on site, we will not be able to offer any key worker care. As in any school we have to have a qualified teacher in class to meet our legal requirements around staffing.
If you pay for child care we will deduct this from your monthly fee the following calendar month.
The following dates announced are the 15th and 16th of March. We will announce whether we will be closed closer to the time in the hope that negotiations with the government and the NEU are successful.
Chair of Governors
