Walthamstow School for Girls

Dear Parents and Carers,

Industrial Action Tuesday 5 July 2016

As you will have heard on the national news, a national strike by the NUT has been called for Tuesday 5 July 2016. This is the union’s next step in its opposition to cuts in funding and in support of their call for genuine negotiations around teacher workload, pay and conditions. This is also one of the days when members of staff will be celebrating Eid ul fitr with their families.  

The governing body at the school and I have carefully assessed the likely impact of this strike action on Walthamstow School for Girls.  Unfortunately, following this careful assessment and based upon the number of staff likely to be absent from work, we have determined that we have no option but to close the school to students on this day.  We note that public examinations have ended so will not be impacted upon by this decision.  

Please note that this action is outside the control of the governing body and is not being taken against the school. We appreciate that inconvenience will be caused. For more information about the background to this action, please refer to the national press.

Yours sincerely

Meryl Davies                            Gillian Barker         

Headteacher                            Chair of Governors

Eid Ul Fitr Mubarak.
