Strike Day - Nursery closed on Thursday 2nd March 2023

Dear Parents and Carers,


You may be aware from media coverage that a Teaching Trade Union has declared strike action which will take place on Thursday 2nd March 2023. 


The strike is happening because of a national dispute between the unions and the Government over teachers' pay, and not because of any issues at our school. We are writing to inform you that in accordance with guidance, a risk assessment based on a large number of variables has been conducted. As a result of this risk assessment, the school will have to be closed on Thursday 2nd March 2023.


This decision has not been taken lightly. We remain committed to ensuring a safe and secure environment for our pupils, and would be unable to provide this with the staff we would have in school on that day.


We understand that this situation may frustrating, but ask that all members of our school community continue to treat each other with respect and understand that this is a sensitive and multi-layered issue. We are working closely with our staff union representatives to keep up to date with the situation, and will inform you as soon as possible should arrangements change, and also to inform you of the situation for the further proposed strike days.


Kind regards,


Grangetown Nursery School
