Academy closed due to strike action - Tuesday 1st October

The Academy has received notice that a number of teachers will be participating in industrial action on Tuesday the 1st of October 2013. This action is not directed at the Academy or it's sponsor, but is part of a national campaign against government proposals to make changes to public sector pay, working conditions and pension provisions.

We have undertaken a risk assessment based on the number of staff that are likely to be participating in the strike on this day and have taken the decision to close the Academy to all pupils. I am sure you will appreciate that the health, safety and well being of our pupils is paramount.

I apologise for any inconvenience that this may cause.

Mr Ian Lowe
Academy Head Teacher
