 Strike action on Friday 1st December

24th Nov 2023

Due to Strike Action called by the Unite Union, our school will be unable to operate as normal on Friday 1st December.

On Friday 1st December there will be NO support staff available in school.  This inlcudes ALL Classroom Assistants, Supervisory Staff, School Crossing Patrol and office staff. 

  • School will be OPEN for children as Teachers will be in school. All children will finish school at 1.45pm (normal Friday finish time)

The following services are cancelled due to lack of personnel

  • No early bird breakfast club
  • No 1-1 support or withdrawal groups
  • No crossing patrol
  • No office staff
  • No WhatsApp, Messenger or Facebook available

Please contact the school landline ONLY in the event of an emergency 02890323683 as the office will be closed.

This is NOT Industrial Action against the school. It is a protest against substantial cuts to the education budget across The North of Ireland. Our children and staff deserve better.

We would appreciate your support & cooperation at this time. 

This action is a last resort. No member of our staff takes strike action lightly. Apologies for any inconvenience. We will update you if any changes arise. 

Yours Faithfully

Miss Weir
