Rodillian High School
Teachers in the NUT union at Rodillian High School in Leeds struck on Tuesday of this week against proposals to increase their teaching hours from 21 to 22 hours a week.
Because of the preparation time involved for each lesson this could mean teachers working the equivalent of two extra weeks a year.
Patrick Murphy, Leeds NUT secretary, said, “The headteacher should be looking to reduce demands on teachers if he wants to improve standards.”
Members of the NUT teachers’ union at Nailsea School in Somerset struck on Tuesday of this week against having to teach extra lesson in time they usually spend preparing or marking work. The strike hit the school’s running.
