Officials from the three teaching Unions (NUT, NASUWT and ATL) and UNISON (representing support staff) met with their members at Neston High School, Cheshire, on the 18th October. Those who were present at the end of the meeting voted on whether or not they supported the proposal that Neston High change its status and become an Academy. 43 opposed the proposal, 4 abstained – no-one was in favour of seeing the school become an Academy.
This meeting was followed by a parents’ consultation evening. Anti-Academy campaigners were allowed to give out their literature inside the school and were even given coffee and biscuits. Click here to read the parents’ letter
Governors will meet on 16th of November to make a decision. We hope they will listen to what their staff, parents and unions have to say.
