Dear Parent, Carer or Friend of St. Ambrose Barlow, I am sure that, like our staff, you have been deeply affected by the terrible events in Manchester city centre. As a school community we are fortunate that although some pupils and staff were present at the concert, all are alive and well. Our staff have provided as much support as possible to young people who are upset by recent events and we will continue to do so over the coming days. On Tuesday we said prayers as a staff and in each form group in memory of those killed and injured and as a gesture of solidarity with all affected by the attack.

Dear Parent/Guardian,

I am writing to inform you that on Tuesday 5th July, members of the NUT teaching union will be taking strike action and I shall have no alternative than to close the school to pupils.

I would like you to know that this decision has not been taken lightly but having taken into account all safeguarding and health and safety issues there will be insufficient staff in school to supervise the pupils.

I know this will inconvenience many parents but the safety and wellbeing of our pupils is of paramount importance and I have no alternative than to take this action.

Please note, school will re-open at the usual time on Wednesday 6th July.

This is
your Ambrose...
