List of schools taking action is growing every day

Reports are flooding in from Lewisham schools where NUT members are confirming that they will be taking strike action. Given that most Lewisham teachers are members of the NUT (and yet others in the ATL), and that the response to the call to take strike action on June 30 has been overwhelming, it's not surprising that many Lewisham schools will be totally closed to pupils - and others only open to a few classes.
We are sorry for the disruption to education - but hope that parents and families will understand why we have no choice but to take action. You are very welcome to join us on the London march to demonstrate against all the cuts!
Below we list the schools where we already know that NUT members are striking - with other reports still to come in. A few schools (marked) will also be holding protest pickets where trade unionists and members of the public are welcome to come along and show their support:

Looking solid - just had a message of support from the local NAHT rep confirming that many schools will be closed
