NLC UPDATE: STRIKE ACTION IN SCHOOLS AND NURSERY CLASSES

Strike action in schools and nursery classes: 26 – 28 September 2023

Unite the Union has notified the council that its members who support the running and operation of primary schools, secondary schools, ASN schools and early years establishments, will be striking on Tuesday 26, Wednesday 27 and Thursday 28 September 2023 in relation to the proposed pay award.

National discussions are ongoing and the situation is being monitored and may be subject to change.

The strike action means that a number of primary schools (including nursery classes) and secondary schools (including LCSCs within schools) will be closed on these three dates and will reopen on Friday 29 September 2023.

Please note that schools will have closed for the arranged September holiday weekend on Friday 22 and Monday 25 September, which means that some parents/carers will need to make additional alternative arrangements for childcare if your school is affected by the strike action.

The following schools will be closed to children and young people on Tuesday 26, Wednesday 27 and Thursday 28 September 2023:

Please note that all other primary, secondary and ASN schools and Family Learning Centres will remain open to staff and pupils from Tuesday 26 September 2023 following the September holiday weekend.

The impact of the industrial action may mean that you will need to consider additional childcare arrangements over these dates.

Families in receipt of free school meals on the basis of low income will be reimbursed via a direct payment to bank accounts or via Paypoint voucher to postal addresses which may take up to five working days.

Please note that soup and sandwiches are the only meals that will be available in all family learning centres, nurseries and schools over the three-day strike period.

This is a situation that may be subject to change and parents/carers will be informed at the first opportunity if there are further changes to the school day.
