Dear Parents and Carers
Plans for Thursday 27th April and Tuesday 2nd May 2023 – NEU (National Education Union)
This is an early communication to share with you the plans to manage the industrial action being taken by the National Education Union on the 27th April and the 2nd May 2023, having reviewed the likely staffing position on that date.
School will be closed for pupils in years 7 and 8 on Thursday 27th April
School will be closed for pupils in years 9 and 10 on Tuesday 2nd May
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 please email CriticalKeyWorker@corbetschool.net with the pupil’s name and form by 8.30am on Monday 24th April. We aim to minimise the impact on learning, as much as possible, teachers who are in school will be setting work on Satchel:One for pupils to complete. Pupils who are at home 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.
When the pupils are in school, 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 normal. As a contingency, could all pupils please bring their PE kit into school and ensure that they have a book with them to read.
School transport will run as normal.
Thank you for your understanding and support; we will do our very best to make sure that the 27th April and 2nd May run as smoothly as possible.

Further to the email which was sent earlier on this week, we are still experiencing ongoing problems between Vericool and Parent Pay account balances. However we are working with both of these suppliers to find a solution.
We will continue to provide food and drink expenditure irrespective of the account balance until the matter is resolved.
We would welcome emails regarding any adjustments that have been made to your account, please email email@example.com
This information will help us in our discussions with our suppliers Vericool and Parent Pay.
