Strikers shut Small Heath school in Birmingham on Wednesday of last week in protest at plans to turn it into an academy. The walkout involved ATL, NASUWT and NUT union members.

The school is one of those associated with the Trojan Horse hoax. Ofsted put it in special measures in January—following five consecutive “outstanding” Ofsted judgements.

Teachers and workers across Britain sent hundreds of messages of support. 

Strikers would like to convey our thanks for all the messages encouraging us to resist the dismantling of a comprehensive education system.

The staff room following the strike was buoyant and positive. That support gave us great strength.
