Several schools across Calderdale are having to close due to the proposed NUT strike action next week.
Teachers, affiliated with the NUT, will walk out on Wednesdsay March 26 over excessive workloads and bureaucracy, the introduction of performance related pay and unfair pension changes.
This has led to alternative plans having to be put in place in our school as individual teachers will be unavailable to teach their classes.
Affected primary schools confirmed so far:
Christ Church Junior School, Sowerby Bridge - Closed entirely.
Lightcliffe Primary School - One form from Reception and Years 2, 5 and 6
