RE: National Education Union Strike Action arranged for Wednesday 15th and Thursday 16th March, 2023
As you will all be aware, the NEU announced that their teachers will strike over pay in England and Wales on a number of days in February and March 2023. The remaining dates for this action in Birmingham, and at Harborne Primary School, are Wednesday 15th and Thursday 16th March 2023.
Following this announcement, I wanted to inform you that Harborne Primary School will be closed to pupils in the following year groups on Wednesday 15th and Thursday 16th March 2023 due to the absence of teaching staff:
- Year 1
- Year 2
- Year 3
- Year 4
- Year 5
The school will, however, be open to all pupils in Year 6, who should come to school as normal on both days.
The strike is happening because of a national dispute between the unions and the government over pay and funding. Our school will always be committed to providing a safe and secure environment for our pupils and delivering a high quality education for all.
