Save Our Ladywood Primary School Dinnerladies!

The Headteacher and Board of Governors of Ladywood Primary School (Grimethorpe, Barnsley) have proposed to make all nine School Meals Supervisory Assistants (dinnerladies) redundant.

The school's proposals would lead to the hardworking Teaching Assistants replacing the dinnerladies and supervising the children at dinnertime.  These plans have been put forward because the school's management do not believe the dinnerladies have the skills to support the children.

UNISON is campaigning hard to save our members jobs.  The redundancies will be devastating for our dinnerladies and it's not fair to ask the already over-worked Teaching Assistants to pick up this important job.  Our members know how damaging these proposals would be to the school's children.

We believe the proposals are completely unnecessary, the school does not need to do this.  The dedicated dinnerladies are at the heart of school life and have been supporting the children for generations.  UNISON does not believe the school has to make these redundancies because of budget cuts. 

UNISON's members in the school are sticking together.  We call on the governors and headteacher to drop the proposals.
