Letter to Parents 31st January




January 31st 2023 


Dear Parents,  

I am writing to you following my earlier letters about strike action by the National Education Union on Wednesday, February 1st.  

Tomorrow, assignments will be set in Google Classroom for students in Years 7 – 10 as per your child’s timetable by teachers, who are not taking industrial action. 

Where teachers are taking industrial action and work is not set in Google Classroom for your child, they should make use of subject related resources and online lessons in their subjects available on: 

or from the full list of resources on this link: 

Electronic Resources Leaflet and Password Sheet 

I have spoken to all students in assembly this morning and explained they should do their best and follow their timetable for the day.  

Years 11 – 13 students should attend school as per the arrangements set out in my letter of January 26th. 

Thank you all for your support of your children and the school, as well as your understanding of the current situation for which I can only apologise. 

Again, I wish Government and Union representatives well in seeking and hopefully finding agreement in the coming weeks.   

Yours sincerely,  

Charles Joseph
