West-Lancs Update by West Lancs

Many thanks to all who attended our AGM on the 2nd March especially our Treasurer, Jenni Harker, for her continued hard work plus our newest school rep, Paul Christopherson from Ormskirk School. Andy Heyes was installed as President and I am continuing as Secretary for another year.

Easter Conference in Cardiff – Paul Christopherson kindly stepped in at short notice to represent the association this year. He attended as an observer and will provide a short report as soon as possible.

Postcards to local MPs regarding Fair Funding for schools are being circulated around our larger schools where possible. If you would like any to distribute amongst members and non-members then please email me: secretary@west-lancashire.nut.org.uk and I’ll get some to you. I’ll even post them for you when they’re done.

Voluntary Redundancies – Government cutbacks are leading to many schools starting this process or look at serious restructuring for next year. Please email me if your school is affected so advice and support can be offered asap.

Next meeting: Our final meeting of the year will be post election so there’ll be lots to discuss. All members are welcome for a free meal/refreshments on Tuesday 27th June at The Sandpiper, Bickerstaffe (4.30 pm).
