Further strikes at Holton Road Primary School


Teachers at Holton Road Primary school are set to strike for seven consecutive school days later this month.

Teachers at the school, who are members of the NASUWT union took part in previous strike action in December over alleged adverse management practices.

At the time, the union said the strike was relating to staff restructuring and the alleged detrimental and inappropriate treatment of members which it says is impacting their health and welfare.

In a letter sent to parents on Tuesday (7th January), which has been shared with Bro Radio the school has confirmed strike action will take place on:

  • Monday 13th January
  • Tuesday 14th January
  • Wednesday 15th January
  • Thursday 16th January
  • Friday 17th January
  • Monday 20th January
  • Tuesday 21st January

The letter confirmed that all members plan to take strike action for the seven consecutive school days, with subsequent January dates of 29th and 30th, also potential dates for strike action.

Within the letter the school told parents that it is "considering the position and looking at any potential options to maintain the school open but due to the number of days now announced and their consecutive nature this may not be possible."

During initial strike action in December NASUWT General secretary, Chris Keates said: “NASUWT members at Holton regret any disruption this strike action causes to pupils or parents, but they have been left with no choice other than to take this action due to the repeated failure of the employer to take seriously their concerns about the way in which they are being managed."

In a comment released in December a Vale council spokesperson said: “We are disappointed that the NASUWT has decided to take this course of action when lines of communication remain open.“As an authority, we remain committed to further engagement with the union in an effort to get this matter resolved at the earliest opportunity.”
