Teachers' strike - Thursday 17 October
Dorset County Council is working to ensure that as many pupils as possible can attend lessons during a planned teachers' strike on Thursday, 17 October.
The council is urging schools to stay open, where possible, during the National Union of Teachers' (opens in a new window) industrial action.
Schools should be informing parents directly if headteachers and governors decide to close or partially close.
School transport should run as normal where schools are open, and with modified services in areas affected by a school closure.
The final decision as to whether a school remains open, closed or partially closed lies with the headteacher and the chair of governors.
Please contact your child's school for more information.
