Some QEII year groups asked to stay at home next week

It's due to the planned NASUWT action

Another secondary school on the Isle of Man is requesting pupils remain at home next week. 

Queen Elizabeth II High School says it's due to the planned NASUWT strikes on Wednesday and Thursday. 

Year 12 and 13 students will attend school as normal and have the option to study from home during their R&R sessions while Year 11 students are requested to attend school on both days.

All other students are asked to remain at home and can access learning via Google Classroom. 

Students learning from home, who receive Free School Meals (FSM), can collect a packed lunch from school at 11.00am on both strike days

According to the headteacher staff who are not striking will set work for each day and be available virtually during their timetabled lessons.
