Academy Closure Wednesday 1st February
The Wells Academy will be closed on Wednesday 1st February due to strike action.
You may be aware from media coverage that the National Education Union has declared strike action, which will take place on Wednesday 1st February 2023. The strike is happening because of a national dispute between the unions and the government over teachers’ pay, and not because of any issues at our school.
I am sorry to inform you that The Wells Academy will be closed on Wednesday 1st February 2023.
We have not taken this decision lightly. We remain committed to providing a safe and secure environment for our students and feel that we would be unable to provide this with the staff we have available.
Further information on support for Year 7 and Year 11 will be provided to students and their families.
Mr G Coles
