Planned Strike Action by the NUT Wednesday 26 March 2014

As you may be aware, one of the teaching unions, the NUT, has conducted a ballot on national strike action regarding pay, conditions and pensions. The strike is planned for Wednesday 26 March and is all day.

Up to 29 out of almost 100 teachers may decide to strike that day and as a result there is likely to be some disruption to teaching.

The College will remain open on that day and College transport will operate as normal. Students should attend their timetabled lessons as usual but, if their teacher has not arrived after ten minutes for a given lesson, they should disperse to an open-access study area or recreation space. If a student has any queries they should go to Visitors’ Reception. Of course, most lessons will not be affected by the strike action and will take place.

If a student is concerned that their attendance is recorded, for example, because of Bursary payments they should report to Student Reception where their attendance will be formally recorded.

Thank you for your co-operation in this matter.

Student Progress Reviews and Review Days

Starting from  Wednesday the 12th March all second year students will have a five minute appointment with their personal tutor, we aim to see as many as students as possible on the Wednesday but it's possible their appointment will be later in the week. Lessons will run as normal for all students on this day but they will be allowed to leave their lesson for their Personal Tutor Appt time. All first year students will be seen week commencing the 24th March. All students will be sent an individual appointment time via their email address and we would appreciate your support in encouraging them to attend.

The purpose of these days is  to review their progress in all their subjects and set targets for the remainder of the academic year. This report will get sent home to you.
