Industrial Strike Action – 27.1.23
Dear parents/carers,
As highlighted to you earlier this week, the NEU has called for strike action. The first of these strikes is scheduled for Wednesday 1st February. The strikes are happening as a result of a national dispute between the union and the government over pay and funding and not due to issues at our school.
The NEU are only one of three large teaching based unions, therefore the impact on each school will vary. With some schools closed to others being unaffected and operating as normal. At Mortimer Primary School, we fully support our staff and their right to exercise their own decisions regarding strike action. 
It is my duty to inform you that, given the information I have currently, Mortimer Primary School will be fully open to all children on 1/2/23. 
At present, the school day will run as normal with teaching of the national curriculum in all classes. I will continue to evaluate the situation and will update you if anything changes. 
With regard to the future strike days, we will be in touch with information regarding how our opening will be impacted nearer the time. These are scheduled for 28/2/23, 15/3/23 & 16/3/23.
Thank you for your support
Mr Bennett
Head Teacher
