Schools across Wandsworth set to be disrupted while teachers take industrial action
Schools across Wandsworth will be disrupted tomorrow while teachers take industrial action over changes to pensions.
Union members plan to march to Whitehall tomorrow, past Downing Street to a protest rally in Westminster's Emmanuel Centre from 10.30am.
A total of 13 primary schools have announced they will be fully closed, while 26 primaries will be partially open with some lessons or classes disrupted.
Primary schools which confirmed they will be closed are Chesterton, Eardley, Eastwood, Furzedown, Griffin and High View.
Penwortham, Ravenstone, Roehampton CE, Sacred Heart in Roehampton, Sacred Heart in Battersea, St Faith's and St Mary's RC will also be closed.
The remaining 61 primary schools and special schools have said they will be unaffected by the strike action.
Two secondary schools will remain open and seven partially open.
The remaining two secondary schools are yet to confirm.
Parents are advised to check school websites and those who provided mobile phone numbers will receive a text message from schools to confirm.
The strike action was called by the National Union of Teachers (NUT) and the National Association of Schoolmasters and Union of Women Teachers (NASUWT).
Spencer Barnshaw, secretary of Wandsworth NUT, said: "Our members in Wandsworth deeply regret the disruption caused by strike action, but many believe that they are now left with no choice because of the government's refusal to engage in any meaningful attempt to address our concerns.
"It is a disgrace that the very people who care so deeply about our children and their vocation are being treated so disrespectfully."
