Dear Parents and Carers
Plans for 1st February 2023 – NEU (National Education Union)
As a follow up to the communication yesterday about the industrial action of the National Education Union on the 1st February 2023 and having reviewed the likely staffing position tomorrow, again this morning, I would like to confirm the arrangements for tomorrow. I apologies for the lateness of this but I’m sure you understand it has been an emerging picture.
School will be closed tomorrow for pupils in years 9 and 10.
We will be offering places in school for our vulnerable children and children of critical workers, who will be able to complete online learning tasks. To book a place for pupils in Year 9 and Year 10 please email CriticalKeyWorker@corbetschool.net with the pupil’s name and form by 8.30am on Wednesday 1st February. We aim to minimise the impact on learning, as much as possible, and year 9 and 10 teachers who are in school will be setting work on Satchel:One for pupils to complete. Pupils in Year 9 and 10 will need to check Satchel at the start of each lesson to see if they have any work to complete. Staff not taking industrial action will be able to respond to messages on Satchel during their timetabled lesson.
Year 7, 8 and 11 will be in school as normal on this day, and they will follow their normal timetable. We may need to make adjustments, on the day, due to unexpected staff absences but will aim to run the timetable as normally, as possible. As a contingency, could all pupils please bring their PE kit and reading book into school.
School transport will run as normal.
Thank you for your understanding and support; we will do our very best to make sure that tomorrow runs as smoothly as possible. We will write to you with further information regarding the future strikes over the coming weeks.
