Dear SWPS Families

I am writing to advise you that we have been notified by the NEU of proposed strike action on 1st March 2023 in relation to a national dispute over pay. Further strikes may also be held on15th and 16th March, to be confirmed.

Our school takes the education of your children very seriously and will endeavour to ensure that the school remains open. An assessment has been conducted to ascertain whether it is safe for the school to operate on.

As a result, I am informing you that Reception and Year 1 class will be closing on Wednesday 1st March 2023. I, therefore, feel it is appropriate to notify you that you should plan for alternative arrangements for childcare.

School will remain open for Nursery, Y2, Y3, Y4, Y5 and Y6.  Siblings of those children in Reception and Y1 will be expected to attend school as normal and attendance policy will apply.

School is open to ALL year groups on Thursday 2nd March 2023, 8:45 am.

If you have any questions, then please contact school. Thank you for your continued support.

Kind Regards

Mrs Shewley Choudhury
