Teachers' strike will hit Warrington schools

SOME schools across Warrington will close tomorrow as teachers head out on strike over a pay and pensions dispute.

Appleton Thorn Primary School,  Penketh Primary School, St Benedict’s Primary School, St Bridget’s Primary School, St Oswald’s Primary School and Winwick Primary School have all confirmed that they will close on Wednesday. 

Recent figures published by the Government show that teachers in primary schools are working 60 hours a week, claim the National Union of Teachers.

The NUT believes that this is too much and that it is one of the reasons why so many young teachers are leaving the profession.

Avis Gilmore, north west regional secretary of the National Union of Teachers, said they ‘deeply regret the disruption caused’.

She added: “Teachers’ levels of workload are intolerable, their national pay framework has been dismantled so that in every school head teachers and governors have to worry about developing a pay system instead of focussing on teaching and learning and they are being asked to work to the age of 68 or even later for a full pension.”

“The NUT recognises that other workers are also having their pensions squeezed and their pay frameworks dismantled.

"We believe that this is wrong too – everyone should be entitled to a decent standard of living now and in retirement.”

The strike follows a series of regional strikes in the autumn where members from the NUT were joined with teachers from fellow teaching union, NASUWT.

Members of the NASUWT will not be taking part in the walk out on Wednesday.

Warrington Borough Council has confirmed that the majority of schools in Warrington will be affected by the industrial action but some schools will remain fully open.

The following schools will be partially open on Wednesday.

Barrow Hall, Beamont Primary, Bewsey Lodge Primary, Bradshaw Primary, Bridgewater High, Brook Acre Primary, Broomfields, Bruche Primary, Burtonwood Primary, Chapelford Village, Culcheth High, Culcheth Primary School, Dallam Primary, Glazebury, Gorse Covert Primary, Grappenhall St Wilfrid’s, Great Sankey Primary, Green Lane School, Latchford St James Primary, Locking Stumps Primary, Newchurch Primary, Oakwood Primary, Penketh South Primary, Ravenbank Primary, Sacred Heart Primary, Sankey Valley St James, St Augustine’s, St Elphin's (Fairfield) Primary, St Gregory's High School, St Lewis Primary, St Paul of the Cross Primary, St Phillip’s CE Westbrook, St Stephen’s Primary, St Vincent’s, Stretton St Matthew’s, Thelwall Junior, Warrington St Barnabas, Westbrook Old Hall Primary, Woolston CE Aided, Woolston Community Primary, Lymm High School, Penketh High.

A number of schools have not confirmed if they will be affected.

Teachers really wind me up!, and don't start with the old rhetoric about them working hard, they spend half the day in a staff room drinking coffee, they get half the year off in holidays, they get paid holiday excursions at the expense of extortionate trips paid for by parents who are blackmailed into paying due to social pressure for their kids. and when they're not on holiday they are on strike. Most don't know their A from the E.
Their starting salary is £21k which is high for a starting graduate salary and with an AVERAGE of £31k, a head teachers salary can be as high as £113k

Typical stereotype. Maybe true 20 years ago. My wife is a primary school teacher and her and her colleagues are typically in work at around 7am and don't leave until between 4.30pm and 5pm every day. There is no time for a 'lunch break', with books usually being marked while eating. They then have work to do in the evenings which typically means 2 to 3 hours work every week night at home on top of the working day and then a bit more planning on a Sunday. Yes they get a lot of holidays, but for every week off they usually spend at least one of those days working, planning or marking. Its not a cushy number by any stretch, you haven't got a clue! 60 hours a week is not an exageration!

It's stupid, ill-informed and pathetic comments like yours that make the job of a teacher even harder.
They work long hours, they spend a large portion of their holidays actually working and they get constant harassment from an increasing number of uneducated (or just stupid) parents.
I know many teachers and have myself been a school governor, so I am speaking from experience.

If teachers were allowed to get on and actually do the job, i.e. teach, then the strike may have been prevented.

From what you have stated, it would seem that you have not been inside a school staff-room for at least the time period you quoted. I know personally that teachers spend a great deal of their time when not teaching in preparation for lessons to come and in recording for lessons delivered. They often continue their training in general areas of teaching both internal and externally from the classroom, most teachers will attend additional training for their specialist subjects and specialist responsibilities. Therefore as I see it there is no correlation between what you erroneous assumed and thought and what happened in reality.

Yes, I am sure that they would have read them. The main issue is that successive governments keep changing them, hence the need for the consultation that has been disapproved hence the reason for strike action.
Yes but besides from all that nonsensical dribble, Xbox live will be full of squeakers tomorrow, how selfish are these Teacher's?

Apple Junkie was certainly not referring to any private schools. Home schooling is a parental choice where the educate their own children at home. Incidentally, they can also choose when the have their holidays and they have to be scrutinised by the Local Education Authority for curriculum content and their suitability for the task.

Yes, I am sure that they would have read them. The main issue is that successive governments keep changing them, hence the need for the consultation that has been disapproved hence the reason for strike action.
Yes but besides from all that nonsensical dribble, Xbox live will be full of squeakers tomorrow, how selfish are these Teacher's?
But I don't believe that the teachers are all as selfish as you would assert in your limited thoughts and your stereotypical comments.
"assert in your limited thoughts and your stereotypical comments".

Is that not a double standard comment?
NO!

Your comment doesn't make sense. You seem to be getting a bit confused about the role of a teacher. Come back when you have sufficient knowledge on the subject in question.

There was no grammatical error to correct in the first instance.

The school I was at did well in their Ofsted. Thank you for your concern.

Once again, kids education is turned into a political football. I have worked in a school as a parent helper. I have seen teachers strugglling because rules have tied their hands on what they can/cannot do. I have also seen lesson taught by TAs because the school has given the teacher "planning time". Yep, actual time to do that planning which teaching supporters say all is always done outside of the 9-3 timetable.

The teaching unions are their own worse enemies in that they appear (to the general public) to block any attempt to improve teaching standards. It appears to be all one way traffic.

I would note however that today most schools will be "disrupted". The next time the support staff (caretakers, TAs, clerical etc) decide to strike, schools WILL close. Now tell me who are the most important workers in those school (I was going to say people, but that is obvious the kids, every time ! )

I do a 7-4.30 job, only get the statutory holidays, very often stay outside of my hours to complete work. Is my kids education suffering.......YES, because they get to spend less time with daddy.

Typical stereotype. Maybe true 20 years ago. My wife is a primary school teacher and her and her colleagues are typically in work at around 7am and don't leave until between 4.30pm and 5pm every day. There is no time for a 'lunch break', with books usually being marked while eating. They then have work to do in the evenings which typically means 2 to 3 hours work every week night at home on top of the working day and then a bit more planning on a Sunday. Yes they get a lot of holidays, but for every week off they usually spend at least one of those days working, planning or marking. Its not a cushy number by any stretch, you haven't got a clue! 60 hours a week is not an exageration!
No that's typical "my wife's a teacher" rubbish

AND??? that's a normal working day for most people, I myself work 7.30-4pm officially and while allotted a lunch hour, sit at my desk continuing my workload and regularly don't leave till 7pm !! many many people work much harder and longer hours than me, its not uncommon today to work a 12 hour shift. 60 hours a week is NORMAL! for professionals in any career with no state backed pensions only private which we pay for.
As for it being true 20 years ago...yes it was, they were moaning then and they're still moaning now.

It's stupid, ill-informed and pathetic comments like yours that make the job of a teacher even harder.
They work long hours, they spend a large portion of their holidays actually working and they get constant harassment from an increasing number of uneducated (or just stupid) parents.
I know many teachers and have myself been a school governor, so I am speaking from experience.

If teachers were allowed to get on and actually do the job, i.e. teach, then the strike may have been prevented.
"uneducated parents"
Check your own grammar!
Its always the losers with no arguments that resort to grammar and spelling to reinforce their weak argument, like it somehow adds validity. Apologies for my grammar but it seems my teachers were inept!!

meanwhile check your limited vocabulary understanding " job of a teacher even harder" the job is unchanging it's their plight is harder or their work...job is a set task.,

as for them being allowed to get on with the job...PLEASE DO!!!! that's the problem, they don't !!! too busy drinking coffee and striking!

It was Grumpy, that brought up the issue of grammar. Incorrectly claiming that I had made a grammatical error.

Other sectors/professions strike more often than teachers, yet don't seem to get so much anger aimed at them. I think it is clear why this is the case, so i won't go in to any further detail.

Your comment " the job is unchanging it's their plight is harder or their work...job is a set task.," doesn't make any sense. Can you explain what you mean?
