Marland Hill Community Primary School

Together we will achieve more!

Teacher Strikes

Please see the letters sent out tonight that confirm which classes will/ will not be in school on Wednesday and Thursday. This is still subject to change, and we will communicate any changes to you as soon as we are able to.


Children whose classes are closed will be allocated a special attendance code to reflect this, which will not count against their attendance. Children whose classes are in that day will be expected to attend as normal, and will be marked as unauthorised if they are not in. We will follow up any absences in the usual way if we do not hear from parents.

For the children entitled to benefits related free school meals who are not in that day, a grab bag will be sent home in advance.


Please remember that this is nationally planned strike action, and is not specific just to Marland Hill. It is a national dispute between unions and the government, and not linked to any issues at our school.
