The majority of teaching staff will take industrial action on Tuesday 5th July. This follows a recent national ballot by members of the National Union of Teachers (NUT).
Over 90% of our teaching staff are members of the NUT. In these circumstances it will not be feasible for the school to open that day. We work hard to provide an engaging and disciplined learning environment, however, this will not be possible with the majority of our staff not present.
The staff at Central Foundation are very dedicated and committed to the success of the students as is indicated by the outcomes achieved by the students. They do not take this action lightly, appreciating the inconvenience it will cause to parents. The school staff and I will be working hard to ensure that loss of learning time does not prejudice the educational attainment of the students.
