School Closed Wednesday 26th March - Industrial Action


School Closure


Proposed Industrial Action by National Union of Teachers (NUT) :Wednesday 26th March 2014.



Dear Parents and Carers,


I am writing to inform you that having undertaken an internal audit of members of staff who will be taking industrial action on Wednesday 26th March 2014 , St Thomas of Canterbury RC Primary School will be

closed on that day. With the vast majority of staff taking industrial action it would not be possible to provide a worthwhile and safe educational experience for our pupils on that day.


It is not my place to comment positively or negatively about national action of this kind. I can though, speak on behalf of all staff here at St Thomas of Canterbury in saying that this action has been taken with great regret.


I apologise for the inconvenience caused to parents and carers.



Yours Sincerely,



Mr David Deane


Head teacher
