Schools closed as teachers strike
10:32am Wednesday 26th March 2014 in News
MANY schools are shut or are partially closed today after members of a teaching union took industrial action over working conditions.
Kings Wood School and Highworth Combined School in High Wycombe and Manor Farm Junior School in Hazlemere are among those closed.
Dozens of other schools around the county are partially shut.
Members of the NUT union are on strike as part of an on-going campaign against planned changes to national pay, conditions and pensions.
Bucks NUT Secretary, Annette Pryce, said: "Teacher workload is unsustainable and the thought of doing the job until 68 is driving many away from the job.
"Teacher morale is at dangerously low levels. Children need teachers who are fresh and well motivated, not tired and demoralised.
“All the polls show that Michael Gove is out of touch with teachers and parents - he must listen and change direction.”
