Teachers’ strike action announced

    Strike action will take place both nationally and regionally on different days. Strikes are scheduled in the south-west on Wednesday 1 February, Thursday 2 March, Wednesday 15 March and Thursday 16 March.

    The National Education Union (NEU) has confirmed industrial action will take place in February and March.

    Only the NEU’s teacher members have currently met the threshold for industrial action, therefore it will only be the relevant school and centrally employed teachers striking; support staff are not included.

    Action will take place both nationally and regionally on different days. Strikes are scheduled in the south-west on Wednesday 1 February, Thursday 2 March, Wednesday 15 March and Thursday 16 March.

    Schools will take all reasonable steps to remain open for as many pupils as possible, however, there may be some disruption and potential school closures if they do not have sufficient resources. Priority will be given to vulnerable children and young people as well as children of critical workers. Schools will contact parents as soon as possible if they need to close or restrict the number of pupils in school.
