It is widely believed that the government plan to bring forward a white paper that will force all schools to become academies.
After several days of strike action teachers in Small Heath school in Birmingham have been told that their school will not become an academy.
The ATL union representing support staff have voted to rejoin strike action at Small Heath School on 28th Jan and 2nd, 3rd and 4th Feb.
Notice has been sent to the school. Teachers are saying thank you to the support staff at the school for standing with the NUT and standing by Simon O’Hara.
NUT Teachers in Birmingham School Small Heath began nine days of action this morning with a vibrant picket line. About 30 teachers and supporters gathered at the main site whilst two other sites were also picketed. The teachers are resisting plans to convert the school to an Academy.
