The NASUWT are currently undertaking industrial action to oppose the planned academy status for Otley Prince Henry’s school in Leeds, following a successful ballot for action.
The NUT are balloting for action at the present time.
The local community are against the proposals, yet the headteacher and chair of governors wish to go ahead regardless. The governing body are split with a very small majority in favour.
There is an on-line petition at www.leedsnasuwt.org.uk/
“The town council has made a unanimous appeal to governors to hold a democratic parent ballot. The school belongs to its local community, not to a future handful of unelected governors”
