Just one school in the Gainsborough area will be fully closed due to a teacher’s strike tomorrow (Tuesday).

Hemswell Cliff Primary School will be closed, with partial closures in place at Parish Church School and Corringham Primary School.

All other schools in the area are open as normal.

The industrial action has been organised by The National Union of Teachers (NUT) and National Association of Schoolmasters Union of Women Teachers (NASUWT).

The dispute centres on changes to public sector workers’ pensions which will see teachers work longer, pay in more and get less and also on planned changes to the way teachers are paid.

And unions object to plans to scrap national pay agreements, remove pay rises based on length of service and introduce performance-related pay.
