As a Stay-Home-Mum I am available to look after my children should the schools be closed due to strike action. It's just it would be nice to know one way or the other. When I was at school it affected a tiny minority who were taught by the newly-introduced male teachers - but letters went home. I gave up today and phoned. The Head's position is "No information needs to be given to parents because school will be open and they will know this because we haven't sent a letter to say it will be closed" I'm sorry but I find this to be breathtakingly arrogant. Those of us who listen to the news know there's a strike - we want to know if we need to make alternative provision. I understand Heads know numbers if not names. Surely you can tell us even if you are definitely open. I am so glad I am not a working parent. Please show some manners/ consideration. We understand last minute for snow. I don't believe you don't know the position for next week. Please tell me my son's headteacher is alone in lack of consideration.
