School and nursery strike update

Published Tuesday 24 October 2023

Glasgow families have been given an update on the industrial action being taken in relation to pay claims and impacting nurseries and schools on Wednesday 1 November 2023.

Douglas Hutchison, Executive Director of Education has written to parents and carers to inform that all our nurseries, primary schools and ASL schools (including ASL secondaries) will be closed to children and young people.

Our secondary schools will only be open for S4 - S6 with similar arrangements to last month's strikes - except for Àrd-sgoil Ghàidhlig Ghlaschu - which will be closed to all pupils. It is not part of our PPP Contract and therefore is staffed by council staff rather than Amey staff.

The letter has been issued by schools and nurseries to their families to give them as much notice as possible to make alternative arrangements for the day of action.

Any updates will be posted on the council's communication channels ahead of next Wednesday, 1 November and any local arrangements communicated by schools and nurseries to their families.

Free school meal strike payment

Free school meal payments of £2.50 per day for all free school meal entitled families with children in P1 - S3 will be made retrospectively directly into bank accounts along with the Winter school closure payment to cover the day of strike action.

Any S4, S5 or S6 pupil who chooses not to attend school on these days, will not receive this payment.
