Teachers at Castle Vale School are planning a fourth day of strike action next week. Members of the NAS/UWT will be on strike on Thursday 29th March.
Teachers at the school initially took action over claims of adverse management practices and lack of support with pupil disruption.
But teachers are angry about a decision to take disciplinary action against their union representative and a deputy head who took part in the first strike on 7th March.
An email from Birmingham education boss Les Lawrence, and forwarded to all teachers at the school before last week’s strike action, said that the disciplinary action was unrelated to the discussions about school management and support with pupil disruption.
However, union members were angered by the timing of the decision to take disciplinary action, coming so soon after agreement had been reached between the two sides to postpone further strike action and hold talks aimed at remedying the problems in the school.
The Birmingham Mail has today reported on last night’s public meeting at Topcliffe School. Its headline: “Parents call for Castle Vale Performing Arts College headteacher to resign” describes the mood of the meeting, at which parent Teresa Doyle said she had a petition of 350 signatures expressing a vote of no confidence in the school’s headteacher.
