Teachers at Newton-le-Willows Primary School set for further strike action
7:17pm Monday 11th February 2013 in News
TEACHERS are expected to strike again tomorrow (Tuesday) at a primary school because of a dispute over a new appraisal system.
The NASUWT says teachers from Newton-le-Willows Primary School will form picket lines again on Tuesday.
They are unhappy over new performance management procedures, which they claim would allow heads to monitor teachers in lessons on an unlimited number of occasions.
An initial day of strike action was held a week ago – but with no talks taking place between the unions and education bosses at St Helens Council – two days of action are scheduled for Tuesday and Thursday.
Despite the strike last week, the school remained open, however, education bosses did not comment on what disruption it caused to pupils or lessons.
