Strike Action

24th January 2023
Dear Parents/Carer,



As you may be aware, the NEU teachers union have balloted and agreed strike action on the following dates: Wednesday 1st and Tuesday 28th February 2023.

The NEU are striking around the following reasons:

  • Recruitment and retention of staff 
  • Underfunding of education by the current government
  • Wage increase for staff which is below the rate of inflation

We are currently looking at the impact of strike action on Hillcrest school and will update you as soon as possible on whether there will be any changes to our normal opening arrangements for these days as we have got striking staff members.
