NUT Striking Against Academy Status at Kimberley – What you can do to support them and oppose academy status

The NUT at The KImberley School are taking strike action in protest at plans to turn the school into an academy.

What can you do to oppose the plans?

Join our Lobby of the Special Meeting of the Full Governing Body at the school from 5pm on Wednesday 27 June 

Demand that the school organises a meeting for parents to hear both sides of the argument and organises a secret ballot of parents before any decision is taken

Have your say

Write to the Head Teacher, Chair of Governors and other members of the governing body to oppose the academy conversion either by sending a letter to the Clerk to the Governors at school in a sealed envelope marked “Academy Consultation” or emailing office@kimberleyschool.co.uk

Please cc or forward your email to savekimberleyschool@gmail.com and please do this before Wednesday 27 June

Save Kimberley School from Academy Status Campaign

The latest on the Save Kimberley School from Academy Status Campaign is that governors are due to meet on Tuesday 7 February and will vote on whether to go into a further six week formal consultation. The NUT branch has suspended strike action until after the 7th and will give notice to strike if the governors vote to go into formal consultation.
