The Prime Minister has made no mention of schools in his ‘Plan B’ statement last week, despite the fact that many schools are struggling with rising numbers of staff and pupil absence.
In the light of this the NEU has called for further mitigations in schools, which you can read here.
NEU Reps are advised to meet with headteachers to discuss what further measures can be taken in the next week to minimise the risk to staff and pupils.
Please do not hesitate to get in touch if you have any concerns or need advice.
Christmas treats: we will reimburse up to £40 if Reps want to buy some treats for the staffroom or an NEU meeting before the end of term.
NEU Conference: please do consider putting your name forward as a delegate to the NEU Conference at Easter. The nomination form is here
All member pay briefing: the NEU will be conducting an important survey of members about action on pay in January.
We are holding an important briefing for all members on Monday 17th January and would like Reps to organise school group meetings in the same week.
Membership checks: Reps can check the membership for your school online – click on this link and use your myNEU login details.
We have emailed members today, asking them to check their details and make any necessary changes, please encourage colleagues to do this.
Film screening and Q&A: bookings are going very well for our screening and Q&A with Aminul Hoque – places are limited so book early to avoid disappointment.
That’s it for now, thanks for all your hard work this term.
Have a wonderful holiday.
