Opposition to the plans to make Worthing High an academy is growing fast. Staff are balloting for industrial action and parents have set up a campaign group.
On Saturday, about 50 parents and children from Downhills and other local schools had a ‘carpet time’ in Carpetright, Tottenham Hail to protest against the Secretary of State’s attempts to force our school to become an academy sponsored by Lord Harris.
Members of the NUT at Kimberley School have voted overwhelmingly for strike action against academy status. The first day of strike action is scheduled for Tuesday, May 29, with two further days of action after half-term.
Around 25 NUT members went on strike on Wednesday 23rd May over plans to transfer the school to the Collaborative Academies Trust, the ‘not for profit’ arm of Edison Learning.
