June 2011

Dear parent/carer,

Following our letter last week regarding the forthcoming industrial action, I am writing to inform you that:

The school will be open to students in Year 12 but closed to students in Years 7-10 on Thursday 30 June 2011

Dear Parent/Carer

In June 2010, schools deemed by Ofsted to be 'Outstanding' were invited to become Academies. Since that time, the Governors of St John's have been investigating what the implications of this would be for our school, as well as keeping abreast of national developments. Our intention throughout has been to understand the process, benefits and possible drawbacks of this change in status.

Dear Parents/Carers,

We have been informed by the ATL and NUT unions that they will be taking industrial action in the form of a strike on 30 June 2011.

This action is not against the school itself but is part of national industrial action organised by these trades unions about changes to the pensions schemes of their members.

Dear students,

I thought it might be useful to remind you of the arrangements for our Prom, which we are celebrating at Redworth Hall on the 1st July 2011, from 7.30pm until 11.30pm.
