Industrial Action on 14th October 2014


Dear Parent/Carer


The Unite, Unison and GMB unions have announced that, further to the respective ballot of their members, they will be calling upon members to take discontinuous strike action with a day’s strike action on Tuesday 14th October 2014.


The strike will affect key areas of the school – caretakers, office staff, cleaners, kitchen, welfare staff and teaching assistants.


The decision to close Aintree Davenhill is never taken lightly, but in this instance, where staff have elected to take lawful industrial action, I will have no choice but to take appropriate steps to ensure the health, safety and well-being of all the pupils.


We are aware that closing the school does inevitably inconvenience parents and carers. However unless the situation changes, school will be closed on Tuesday 14th October and will re-open on Wednesday 15th October.


If there are any developments we will contact you by Parent Mail and letter.


Yours sincerely



G. A. Kelley - Headteacher
