Situation after midterm

Written by HelenGormley on . Posted in Events, Featured, General News, Information for Parents, Uncategorized

Dear Parent(s)/Guardian(s),

 

ASTI withdrawal from Supervision and Substitution

 

As you are aware from the media, the ASTI has directed its members to withdraw from supervision and substitution duties with effect from 7th November 2016. This follows the repudiation by ASTI members of the Lansdowne Road Agreement.

 

Health and Safety legislation and the in loco parentis principle place a duty of care on school management to ensure the safety, health and welfare of pupils.  The Board of Management wishes to keep the school open if at all possible.  To this end school management have assessed the supervision and substitution needs of the school and have put in place arrangements for the provision of supervision of pupils.

As of our understanding of the current situation today, 28th October, we have decided that we will be open for all students on Monday 7th November – unless you are notified otherwise in the interim.

The Board of Management wish to assure you that it will continue to make every effort to provide education and care for our pupils and values your support in this endeavour.

ASTI Strike Day November 8th

Regrettably ASTI has also notified the Board of Management of a Strike Day on November 8th.  If this strike day goes ahead as planned the Board of Management will not be in a position to discharge its responsibility with regard to the care of students in its charge.

The Board of Management is therefore requesting you not to send your son/daughter to school on November 8th.

The Board of Management will notify parents of arrangements regarding any further strike dates as they arise.

The Board of Management regrets this course of action is necessary.  The Board has no wish to interrupt the education of students in this school; and will make judgements based on the best interest of our students in subsequent days.

Yours sincerely,

 

Canon Robert Deane                                     Liam Wegimont

Chairperson – Board of Management            Secretary – Board of Management
