Teachers’ strike Wednesday 1 February – how it affects schools in Chiswick

The first of three teachers’ strikes, affecting London schools, is due to take place on Wednesday 1 February.

Some of the schools we have talked to do not yet know, at time of writing on Tuesday morning, how many staff will stay away, but others knew enough to be definite about whether they will be open or closed.

The National Education Union (NEU) announced the strike action across the UK following its ballot of teacher members in pursuit of  a “fully funded, above-inflation pay rise for teachers”.

Talks on Monday ended without resolution. The National Education Union said Education Secretary Gillian Keegan had “squandered an opportunity” to avoid Wednesday’s strike action.

Chiswick School told us they will be ‘partially open’ and an email will be going out to parents later today.

Strand on the Green Infants School will be closed completely, the Junior school will be partially closed, but year 5 will still be going in.

We have been told Falcon’s pre-prep, Orchard House school and St Mary’s RC primary school will be open; Cavendish primary school and William Hogarth will be closed.
