Around 100 people joined a picket line at Montgomery Primary School in Birmingham on Wednesday of last week.
Workers in the NUT, NASUWT and GMB unions struck against plans to turn their school into an academy.
This was their second strike against the academy plan after a one-day strike last December—and the turnout was bigger.
Many parents and children from the school joined the picket line. Children sang the Save Downhills School song that teachers and children had made up in Haringey, north London (see page 6).
Chants included, “Who got the power? We got the power. What sort of power? Union power.”
Around 130 people attended a Save Montgomery School public meeting on Thursday of last week.
