Industrial Action by Non-Teaching Staff

Further to yesterday’s communication, I am writing to confirm that the strike action by non-teaching staff planned for next week is going ahead and that Culloden Academy will be closed to all pupils on Tuesday 26th September, Wednesday 27th September and Thursday 28th September. Teaching staff will be in the building and whilst there is no expectation from the Council of live delivery, we are keen to minimise the loss of momentum in learning. For that reason, all teachers will be expected to upload some independent learning materials to Google Classroom for all classes each day.

I will take the opportunity to run additional Improvement focused meetings and staff development events but beyond that teachers will respond to queries and emails when available. It has been a really good start to term and I am concerned about the impact this disruption will have and the lost time for completing courses so please ensure your young person does log in and complete the appropriate tasks. If you have queries or concerns please contact your child’s Guidance teacher or contact Senior Management via
