NEU Strike Action
Thank you for your understanding with the disruption caused by the two days of strike action this week. I am pleased that today the government and unions have begun some talks which will hopefully lead to a resolution to this dispute and ultimately better funding for our schools. As part of these talks the NEU has announced that no further strike dates will be released for two weeks to create a period of calm whilst the negotiations are taking place. I will keep you updated if I receive any further information on this dispute.
