Industrial Action

25th September 2013


Dear Parent/Carer


As you will be aware from our most recent school newsletter, the NASUWT and NUT teaching unions have balloted members for strike action to take place next Tuesday

1st October. Whilst members of unions taking industrial action are not obliged to tell me of their intentions until the day of the planned action, those striking have taken the decision to notify me early, in order to give parents as much notice as possible regarding the impact on school.


Following the completion of a health and safety risk assessment and having held discussions with our Chair of Governors, I have no option but to advise all parents that Lowe’s Wong Anglican Methodist Junior School will be closed to children next Tuesday 1st October due to strike action.


The staff who have chosen to take industrial action have asked me to pass on their reasons for taking this action and this can be found at:


I sincerely apologise for any inconvenience this will cause our parents and carers.


Yours sincerely



Mr M.Follen
