As you may be aware, a wide range of public sector unions have recently balloted for strike action in response to possible changes to public sector pensions as proposed by the UK Government. This action is set to happen on
Wednesday 30th November 2011.
The purpose of this letter is to alert you to the possibility that the school may well be closed to some or all pupils on this day. I am not yet able to outline the definitive position but would certainly intend doing so by Monday 28th November 2011.
Regarding S4 Prelim Examinations, please note as per detail on the prelim timetable that examinations planned for 30th November 2011 will move to 8th December 2011 if the school is closed as a result of strike action.
