Dear Parents and Carers,
The Unison union has recommended to its members that they should not attend their workplace tomorrow because of health and safety concerns (the rapid rise in COVID infections, especially the new variant strain). The NEU has also reminded members of their statutory right not to attend work if they feel the workplace in unsafe.
GMB, NAHT.and ASCL have NOT told members to stay away from work but rather encouraged them to attend to provide schooling for vulnerable pupils and children of Keyworkers.
The Department for Education continues to instruct Special Schools to open tomorrow for all pupils.
CHERRY OAK SCHOOL IS closed to pupils on Monday 4 January 2021, as planned, for a Professional Development Day. It is probable that there will be substantial staff absence on Tuesday 5 January 2021 which may result in the school being closed for face-to-face learning, with remote learning enabled. Ross Ashcroft, Head Teacher, will keep you updated about this.
