Executive Principal’s Blog – 27.1.23 ‘Update on School Closure’

As a reminder, due to the large number of staff in the NEU at Bushey Meads School and the planned strike action, the school will have to close on Wednesday 1st February, and Wednesday 1st March, and (if no pay deal is agreed with the Government) Wednesday 15th and Thursday 16th March 2023.

Please remind and encourage your children to complete as much work as possible at home on these days on the varied online platforms available. These include SAMLearning, MyMaths, Dr Frost Maths, Educake, SENECA Learning and GCSE BiteSize.

With the limited staff on site we can offer to Year 11 and 13 students only the option of coming into school next Wednesday and completing independent learning in supervised learning zones. Year 11 students should register and remain in the Learning Hub/School Restaurant and Year 13 students should register and remain in the Sixth Form Centre. Students wishing to take up this opportunity will be offered a limited break and lunchtime catering service via the School Restaurant.

We do once again apologise in advance for any disruption caused by the strikes but want to reassure you that all staff will continue to support all students with their ongoing learning and achievements and will continue to provide all the additional extracurricular opportunities, revision sessions and ongoing raising achievement initiatives on offer at our school.

As always do click on the link to read this week’s BMS News highlighting some of the things that have been happening in our fantastic learning community this week.
