Cambridgeshire: Teacher Strike

Thousands of teachers across the country have been on strike on Tuesday, in the continued row over pay, pensions and working conditions.

Cambridge Teacher Strike

As a result of teaching union members striking, around 120 schools in the Cambridgeshire and Peterborough area were either fully or partly closed.

Schools are expected to have written to parents to indicate if they are going to be affected by the industrial action.

Parents seeking further information are advised to check with their child's school directly, either by phone or by visiting the school website.

Jon Duveen, the Secretary of the Cambridgeshire branch of the National Union of Teachers, told Heart: "We've tried all sorts of ways, over the last three years, to get serious negotiations, with the Department for Education, and even though both the NUT and the NASUWT have written to Education Secretary Michael Gove several times, we are no further forward with negotiations.

If Mr Gove doesn't come to the negotiation table easily, we are left with very little choice."

Teaching unions are also taking part in a rally in Cambridge city centre at lunchtime on Tuesday.

It's from 11:30am to 12:30pm.

A march will take place, from Parker's Piece to the Cambridge Union Society.
