tts jnr (aged 7 yr 2) today came home with a letter from school..
due to industrial action the following classes will not be open next thursday..
yr 2 mrs C.
tts jnr quoted mrs C as saying '' there going on strike for the kids so they dont have to go to school on saturdays and stay on week days till 5 like the govt wants them to''
well aside from the politiscising of 7 yr olds i have an issue or two..
mrs c is free to strike.. break a leg..
howver she has to give her employer 28 days notice .. how is it i only get 7 days notice.. surely not to maximise the impact.
how when mrs c took two days off before half term to prepare to get married in half term was it alright for the class room assistant to 'take' the class for those two days..AND when mrs C takes the last two days off of the summer term and the classroom assistant takes the class is that acceptable .. but when mrs c takes one day off on industrial action does that mean the class has to close for the day.. surely not to maximise disruption..
as neither the head nor the two assistant heads arent taking action are they not able to take a class.. surely thats not to maximise disruption..
