Well on Thursday we got a letter saying some of the teachers may strike on Wed, on Friday I get 3 letters, one from each teacher.
The 2 boys are off school as their teachers are striking but Kira's teacher will not strike as he is on paternity leave soon and he will only get paid for one week, so will loose enough money then and cant afford to loose more!

So poor Kira is off to school on weds with about 1/4 of the classes running. I feel for her and would keep her off too but the head has made it clear that any child absent on that day that shouldn't be will be reported. Grrrrrrrrr


Are your schools on strike??

Our High School is closed for all years up to year 12!

Obviously I;m still on mat leave, but ALL teachers in my school are out! And I would be too if was at work. Only 2 or 3 of our support staff are in - only cos they not in the union. One of them is my pal, who I told to get joined up so she is out too. Dont know what she did. Dont know what outcome of what happening in my school as not been in though
Think I'll have my own wee strike [smilie=clap.gif]
Can I just say WELL DONE TO ALL THE PEOPLE STRIKING!!!!! Make the government take notice. I know it causes problems for parents, but if you really knew what they are suggesting you would be disgusted. For me it would mean working till I was about 70 and even then only getting about £500!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 70 is far too old to work anyway, but in SEN with the violence we have to put up with - they would carry us out in a box before we got a pension. Plus they are taking away holiday pay for teachers - expecting us to continue to take all the school holidays - but UNPAID!!!!!!!!!!!!
Sorry rant over
xx

It will be a nightmare! Not looking forward to it!

I agree Vicky. It should be all out. Surprised partly open as thought janitor should be out too. Up here if few not striking they will be re-deployed for the day to library or something. They won't open schools for one class. That was the impression we were given that all schools uk wide would work! I would double check she has to go in :)

All of South Lanarkshire's schools are out. My mate's a childminder and two of her kids (I say kids but they're 14 & 17 :lol:) have to go to school as they go to St Aloysius' College (a private school) in Glasgow. They're well hacked off as their wee sister is in Lucas' class and is therefore off :lol:
