Strike Days

Home learning

Please follow this link for strike day lessons.

I am writing to advise that there will be two days next week affected by the proposed strike action by the teaching union, NEU.  Unless the strikes are called off, we will be partially open on Wednesday 15th March and Thursday 16th March.  

As with the previous arrangement, we have considered several options, looked at all elements of school safety and logistics and worked on how best to ensure as much curriculum continuity and progression as we can.  I am sorry about the potential disruption to you and to your child’s education. I understand that this situation may be frustrating and ask that all members of our school community continue to treat each other with respect. Alsager School remains committed to providing a safe and secure environment for our pupils and delivering high-quality teaching.  

All teaching staff who are not taking industrial strike action will be in school.  All non-teaching staff and LSAs will be in school.  

  1. Year 11, Year 12 and Year 13 will attend school as normal.  Buses will still be running and normal school functions will be in operation for these students.  
  2. Year 7, Year 8, Year 9 and Year 10 will stay at home and remote online learning will be provided for students.  This will directed online learning.  Directed online learning will be a combination of links to established websites, links to software packages to which we already subscribe (e.g., Bedrock, Seneca, GCSE Pod), links to curriculum activities which may be on the school website.  Instructions will be emailed to students and posted on our website.  If your child is unable to access work, please contact your child’s Head of College.
  3. Pupils who were invited into school for the last Strike Day will also be expected to attend.
  4. If your child is entitled to a free school meal, they will be able to collect these on the Tuesday at 3:10 from Best Bite.  It will be a packed lunch.

As a reminder, the strike is happening because of a national dispute between the unions and the government with regards to a fair pay settlement and recouping lost earnings over the last decade. It is not teachers striking against the school.
