Oxfordshire County Council is urging parents to plan ahead for next week’s teacher strike.

Members of the National Union of Teachers (NUT) are set to walk out on Wednesday in their dispute over pay, pensions and working conditions.

There are 281 schools in the county and so far six schools have said they will either be completely or partially closed.

They include Bayards Hill Primary School and Botley Primary School in Oxford, St Nicolas Primary School in Abingdon, and two schools in Henley.

School closure information is available on oxfordshire.gov.uk/schoolclosures

perhaps we could plan if the schools actually told us if they were open or closed??

I thought teachers had one of the most well paid public sector roles last time i checked?

That's a well considered response.

Education wasn't really your thing was it?

This will hit the Government hard then no problem for the parents and children then.
Maybe a reverse strike by teachers in August ? They could go to work at a school?
