Urgent Notice: Strike - Tuesday 5th July - Letter to Parents

The Academy would like to make all parents aware that the NUT announced that members in England have voted overwhelmingly in favour of strike action to protect pay and working conditions. In the NUT’s ballot, 91.7% voted in favour of strike action.

The NUT is calling the first day of strike action on 5 July.

We would urge all parents to ensure that you have adequate care in place should the Academy be in a position to run a reduced timetable due to teachers participating in the strike.

Please see the letter below regards to the outline for the day

Guru Nanak Sikh Academy - Primary Phase

The following classes will be closed to pupils on Tuesday 5th July:

Yr 1 MD, Yr 3 HS, Yr 3 PJ, Yr 6 AO ,Yr 6 JP

 For all other classes pupils should attend school as normal.

Guru Nanak Sikh Academy - Secondary Phase

All Year 7 and Year 8 timetabled classes will not run.

However for year 8 students involved in the White Water Writers Project they should still attend for this separately pre planned activity for the day.

All other Year 7 and 8 students are NOT to come to school.

Year 9 students on the French trip should come to School for their pre-arranged and organised French Trip. Staffing for this trip has not involved any possible striking members of the NUT and this trip can therefore run as planned.

All other Year 9 students are NOT to come to school.

Year 10 students should attend their Work Experience placements as normal.

Year 12 students should consult the School website and Google-classroom as per their timetable for this day.

Nanaksar Primary School

Nanaksar Primary School is not affected by the industrial action and therefore will remain open.  All students are to attend as normal.
