You may already be aware that the next teachers’ strike action is due to take place on Wednesday 15th and Thursday 16th March.
Due to a shortage of teachers working on those days, unfortunately we are not in a position to allow all Year groups to attend All Saints’. Based on the compliment of staff available, students in Years 7, 8 and 11 will remain at home for those days only. All other year groups should attend as per usual in full PE uniform. These arrangements for the upcoming strike days are different from the previous ones; this is because the school is committed to delivering the residential trip to Lockerbrook for our Key Stage Three pupils and in the balance of fairness for all of our students.
Students in Years 9 and 10 should bring their regular exercise books/ folders and all of their All Saints’ Absolutes.
The timings of the school day will operate as per usual and students will be able to access the catering facilities before school and at both break and lunchtime, school buses will also run as usual. If your child is ill on those particular days, please notify school as soon as possible using the normal methods so that all periods of absence can be accurately recorded and monitored.
I will be sending out a separate letter to parents and carers of Years 7, 8 and 11 students who are key workers as those students may be allowed to attend school. Furthermore, another letter will be sent to the parents and carers of who we deem to be vulnerable as those students should also attend.
For those students not attending school on 15th and 16th March, they must access the following resources: https://www.allsaints.notts.sch.uk/teaching-learning/homework/ There are a series of videos which go through independent learning activities and these should be used to guide the production of revision resources based on the All Saints’ Absolutes that each student has received. Year 11 students must use this time to revise for their upcoming GCSEs which will begin on Monday 15hth May.
Of course, school will resume in full operation on Friday 17th March. Thank you for your understanding and continued support.
