Warwickshire secondary school induction days to be postponed due to strikes

SECONDARY school induction days across Warwickshire could be postponed due to strike action.

The county’s school transition days were planned for Wednesday July 5 but some will now be postponed until Monday July 10.

This is due to planned strike action from National Education Union members.

The strikes will affect some schools more than others. If schools are able to accommodate the original induction day date, they may choose to go ahead as planned.




Warwickshire County Council said it anticipated that secondary schools will coordinate with the primary schools local to them as necessary but parents were advised to get in touch with their child’s school to find out more.

WCC’s education spokesoerson Coun Kam Kaur continued: “Secondary Induction Days are a great opportunity for year 6 pupils as it allows them to experience a day as a secondary school pupil.


“I’m really pleased that children can still experience them with the alternative arrangements and I urge parents and carers to get in touch with their child’s school to ensure they have all the details of the Secondary Induction Day.”
