8th October 2014
You will probably be aware, through coverage in the national media, that there is planned industrial action by Unison, Unite the Union and GMB which is due to take place on 14 October 2014.
I await further information which will help to inform the risk assessment that will need to be carried out. This risk assessment addresses issues of health, safety and welfare of both students and staff.
At this stage I am not envisaging having to close the school or to partially close it.
I will write to confirm the outcome of the risk assessment and to provide further information as soon as it becomes available.
