Further school strikes announced

Published Thursday 1 December 2022

Additional strike action has been announced for Wednesday 7 December which will impact schools across the city.

A letter has been sent by Douglas Hutchison, executive director of education to all families today explaining the potential impact the next round of industrial action might have.

Mr Hutchison explains in the letter that each school will have different plans as the numbers in the two unions taking action - the SSTA and NASUWT - will vary.

He says: "It is with regret that I must once again write to you to inform you of potential partial school closures due to industrial action next week by a couple of unions - SSTA and NASUWT.

"The impact of the strike on our primary, secondary and ASL schools will vary across the city and will mean that schools will take their own decisions on what they will be able to deliver depending on how many staff will report to work that day.

"All our stand-alone nurseries and nursery classes will be open as normal.  

"Your child's school will be in direct contact with you to let you know what their bespoke plans are for the day - but you should be aware that it will mean that not all children and young people will be able to attend school.

"I know that this uncertainty is not ideal and will mean that our families will potentially need to make alternative arrangements at short notice."
