Teachers at Sinfin Community School on picket line duty over academy proposal
TEACHERS at Sinfin Community School are beginning a second day of strike action today in opposition to the school becoming an academy.
About 50 members of the National Union of Teachers and National Association of Schoolmasters Union of Women Teachers manned a picket line at the school, in Arleston Lane, yesterday. The school was closed to all but a few year 11 pupils and will be shut again today.
It has been ordered to become an academy by Secretary of State for Education Michael Gove, after it failed an Ofsted inspection in February.
On Monday night, the first academy consultation meeting was labelled "absolute nonsense" by NUT branch secretary Ian Jennison.
