Teachers at Connaught School started a two day strike today (Wed 7th) against plans to force the school to become an academy. There were more than thirty people on the picket line, and all NUT members at the school were out on strike. NASUWT are balloting for strike action.
The teachers said they had received welcome support from the teachers at Stratford School, also striking at the moment against attempts by the head to dock their pay by 15% for carrying out the ongoing NUT work to rule.
The picket will start at 7:15 am tomorrow and pickets welcome support from the community.
