Give as much warning as possible
Tell your school community as soon as you know that strikes or industrial action are happening, even if you're not sure how you will respond yet. This will help make sure that you're getting support from your governors throughout the whole process, and giving parents enough time to make arrangements.
You should inform:
- Your local authority (LA)
- Your academy trust and/or diocesan representative (where appropriate)
In maintained schools: it's the headteacher's decision whether to close your school or not. You don't need permission from any
