On the picket line at Small Heath

Teachers in the NUT, NASUWT and ATL unions at Small Heath School in Birmingham were set to strike on Wednesday of next week. It will be the workers’ fourth walkout in their fight to stop the school being turned into an academy.

Union members plan a fifth strike on 10 December.

Teachers said the school’s Interim Executive Board still refuses to talk to unions about their concerns. Many argue for escalating action.

Five NUT strikers planned to join an NUT lobby of MPs in parliament over cuts on the strike day.
