Schools across the Borough are likely to be affected by a strike next Wednesday (March 28th)

The strike is due to the London members of the National Union of Teachers (NUT) withdrawing labour in an ongoing dispute over pensions.

Individual schools will be sending out letters to parents outlining the way in which their school will be affected.

As not all teachers are members of the NUT, it is likely that some schools will remain partly open for some classes. However, any classes taught by a member of the NUT will probably not be taught and parents are advised they may have to organise childcare options on the day.

The NUT , which also took part in last year’s walkout, said it will be debating a priority motion on pensions at its Easter conference next month.

NUT general secretary Christine Blower said the wording of the motion had not yet been decided.

She said: "Clearly what it will be about is how we maintain momentum of a campaign which is, necessarily, a longish campaign, and what the milestones in that campaign are."

Schools across the borough were closed last November during the one-day strike over pensions by 2.6 million public sector workers.
