I write further to my letter dated 3rd July 2014 regarding the national one day strike taking place on 10th July 2014. It is the case that union members do not need to declare their intentions regarding strike action until the morning of the strike.
As required, a risk assessment has been completed. The consequence of this risk assessment is that Hornsea School and Language College will be partially closed on Thursday 10th July 2014.
The school will be closed to all pupils in Year 7 and Year 8 and therefore pupils in these two year groups should not attend school on Thursday 10th July 2014.
The school will remain open for Year 9, Year 10 and Year 12 students and therefore students in these year groups should attend school as normal. It is our intention to provide a normal timetabled day for students in Year 9 and 12 however please can all students ensure they bring some private study in case this is not possible. All Year 10 students should attend their work experience placements as normal; this includes those that are carrying out their placement within HSLC. Year 10 students who are not on placement should attend school and report to room 35/36 as normal.
There will be a full home to school transport service for Year 9, 10 and 12.
Hornsea School and Language College will be fully open to all students in all year groups on Friday 11th July 2014.
I apologise for the inconvenience arising from the partial closure. Please contact Mrs Thompson, Headteacher’s PA, via the school office if this places you in particular difficulty.
Mr S Lawrence
