Dear Parents and Carers,


School Closure Confirmation – Strike Action


I am writing to confirm my previous communication that on Thursday 27th April 2023 and Tuesday 2nd May 2023, we will be closing School for Reception, Years 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6.


The nursery will remain open.

The reason for this closure is because some teachers will be striking, various staff have dependents whose teachers are striking, and other schools will be closed as a result.


The strike action and reasons behind it can be found on various websites. The strike is NOT because of any school issues but is a national response. This strike action is wider than just schools, and includes strikes being carried out by Ofsted and the Department of Education.


Children who are entitled to free school meals will be provided with a packed lunch the day before to bring home for their dinner whilst school is closed.


I apologise in advance for any inconvenience this will cause to the children and families.


You will be notified in advance of any further strike action that may be planned.


If you have any queries or concerns, please call 02476451724 or email office@stoke.coventry.sch.uk.


Yours sincerely

Mathew Ascroft
