School open for Y7 only, 0820-1350
As you may be aware, two unions have called strike action for next Thursday 10 July. Employees are not obliged to inform their employer if they intend to strike, so it is difficult for the school to know with any certainty who precisely will be at work on that day.
Given the information that I currently have available, the school will be closed to Y8, 9 and 10 pupils on the strike day, as there will not be enough staff to take classes and supervise the pupils.
YEAR 7 PUPILS ARE TO ATTEND AS NORMAL FOR PERIODS 1-4.
Y10 pupils on Work Experience placements outside Priory are to attend work placements as usual. Those with no placements should not attend school. Pupils with internal placements will be notified individually about whether to attend or not.
The strike action is not against Priory School, but against the government and is part of a national programme of industrial action.
