SCHOOL CLOSURES – TEACHER STRIKE ACTION

teachersstrikeCLOSURE LIST UPDATED: On the 17th October, members of the National Association of Schoolmasters and Union of Women Teachers (NASUWT) and the National Union of Teachers (NUT) are staging a one day strike.

As Island Echo reported at the tail end of last month, teachers are not required to inform their school if they are planning on taking part in strike action until the day itself, so some schools may not be in a position to confirm if they are open, partially closed or closed until the day of the strike action.

The Isle of Wight Council have already been able to confirm closures for some schools, however not all. Any schools listed as ‘due to open’ have not yet confirmed their plans for the strike day. However, parents should always assume their child’s school will be open on 17 October unless otherwise stated below.
