Teachers strike in Sheffield

Members of the National Education Union (NEU) went on strike today (6.12.17) at Westways primary school in Sheffield.

Teaching staff have been forced to take industrial action due to the imposition of a new executive head who is imposing massive changes in work and teaching practices, causing additional workload and stress for staff and a narrow curriculum and "teach to the test" for children.

NEU members voted 78% in the ballot for strike action. Staff have massive support from parents who have already gathered 600 signatures on a petition.

If negotiations this afternoon produce no results then the NEU will be striking again tomorrow, and for two days next week.
