Proposed Union Strike

There is a proposed union strike on Tuesday 14th October affecting some support staff and manual workers. The Foundation Phase classes (Nursery, Reception, Year 1 and Year 2) will be closed. The rest of the school will be open but we cannot provide a breakfast or a dinner. Your child will have to bring a packed lunch on that day if the strike goes ahead.

Thank you
