Dear Parent(s)/Carer(s)
Re: Industrial Action: Wednesday 15th and Thursday 16th March 2023
There is further planned industrial action being undertaken by some teaching unions on Wednesday 15th and Thursday 16th March 2023.
Every school will be affected differently, as the numbers of staff involved in this industrial action will vary from school to school. We are anticipating significant disruption to our staffing levels at Mountain Ash Comprehensive School, which will affect levels of appropriate supervision and our capacity to run our curriculum.

We will therefore be closed to all pupils on Wednesday 15th and Thursday 16th March 2023, with the exception of pupils in Years 12 and 13 where certain lessons will run on both days. Subject teachers will communicate with their pupils if lessons will be going ahead on these days and whether pupils need to be in school.

We apologise for the disruption caused but in discussion with colleagues from the Local Authority and Trade Unions we are unable to run our usual provision on these days.

We thank you for your anticipated support and will contact you again should the situation change or our provision need to be adapted.

Many thanks for your kind understanding and continued support,

Yours sincerely,
Mrs. S. Evans Mr. D. Mead
