Teachers at Newton-le-Willows primary school in St Helens began a two-day strike on Tuesday of this week.

The NASUWT union members are striking over a punitive appraisal policy which sets no limit to the number of observations teachers can be subject to.

Unions say there should be a maximum of three observations a year. The walkout follows a strike on Tuesday of last week.

Heamoor strikers go into talks

NUT union members at Heamoor primary school in Cornwall called off strikes for talks.

Their dispute is over workload, pay and conditions.

The teachers struck on Tuesday of last week and for one day the week before.

They planned a further

two-day walkout last

week.

But the union said it had made “sufficient progress”

in talks at the Acas conciliation service to call off the action.
