National Education Union Industrial Action

You may be aware that teachers in Wales who are part of the NEU will be taking planned industrial action on two days in February (1 and 14) and two days in March (15 and 16), with the first being next Wednesday, 1 February. This is a national action and is a situation that is beyond the control of the Council and our schools since pay and conditions negotiations take place at a national level.

Education colleagues have been liaising with Head-teachers to determine the impact this will have on schools in Blaenau Gwent. All schools in Blaenau Gwent will be closed to pupils on these days, with the exception of Ysgol Gymraeg Bro Helyg. Schools will communicate any additional arrangements or information directly to parents/carers.
