We have received notification from the National Union of Teachers that they intend to hold a national day of action on Tuesday 5th July in pursuit of their dispute with the Government on pay, conditions and the level of funding allocated to education nationally.
The day of action is directed against the Government and not The Chase school. However, we will be affected by this action. The NUT forms the largest union within the school and if all members were to be on strike we would not be able to ensure the safety of our students during the day.
It is with regret, therefore, that I have to inform you that the school will be closed to all students on the day.
