The NEU (National Education Union) have announced that its ballot of teacher members in England has met the threshold required to commence industrial action.
The NEU has announced national and regional action. The dates that will affect children in the North of England are as follows:
Wednesday 1st February 2023
Tuesday 28th February 2023
Wednesday 15th March 2023
Thursday 16th March 2023
On these days we are very likely to have a number of NEU teaching staff who will be off and potentially some NEU Teaching Assistants.
This situation is made more challenging as we know that some schools may need to close on these days and then our staff may need to provide childcare for their own children.
At this moment in time, we cannot say with any certainty as to whether school will be open or closed on these days. We will endeavour to keep school open if it is safe to do so. I will write to you with further information as soon as I have it.
