10th March Update - Including updated Strike Information

Dear Parents and Carers,                                                                                         1


SNOW Day 10th March 2023

Thank you to all the parents who brought their children to school today.  As a Senior Leadership Team and Governing Body we feel it is important to offer educational provision and a warm lunch whenever it is safe for us all to travel to school.  We delayed our opening time today to allow the roads to clear of snow and the school site to be made safe.  An early finish allows everyone to get home safely before any potential freezing temperatures at the end of the day.


STRIKE Days 15th and 16th March 2023

So far Ladywood has been unaffected by the Teachers’ Industrial Action however we will experience some disruption on Wednesday 15th and Thursday 16th March.  Please see the updated information below for your child(rens) class and if anyone has any queries and questions please contact us for clarification.  We apologies in advance for any inconvenience the disruptions will cause individual families.
