NEU Industrial Action – School will be closed for pupils in years 9 and 10 on Wednesday 16th March
Dear Parents and Carers
Plans for Wednesday 15th and Thursday 16th March 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 15th and 16th March 2023, having reviewed the likely staffing position on that date. I will update you next Monday of any changes but wanted to give you advance warning so that you can plan accordingly.
School will be closed for pupils in years 7 and 8 on Wednesday 15th March
School will be closed for pupils in years 9 and 10 on Thursday 16th March
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 13th March. 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 15th and 16th runs as smoothly as possible.
