Important Information: a decision has been taken by the National Union of Teachers (NUT), to hold a Day of Action on Wednesday, 26th March 2014.
This dispute is with the Government, not with the Academy Trust and results from ballots conducted in accordance with current employment legislation; it is regarded as a legitimate trade dispute. In such circumstances, responsibility for responding to the industrial action as it affects the Academy falls upon The Academy Trust.
Following an assessment of the likely number of staff who intend to participate in this industrial action, and the health and safety implications of that action for students, it has been decided that Yate Academy will only be open to Years 12 and 13 on Wednesday 26th March 2014. Woodlands Primary Phase will also be closed to pupils but Woodlands Nursery will remain open.
The Academy Trust apologises for any disruption caused by this closure.
