Clapton Girls Strike against Academy Status

NUT members at Clapton Girls Technology College will be taking strike action on Tuesday 12th July against plans for the school to become an Academy.

Hackney NUT have previously written to the Chair of Governors to express "our extreme anger and concern over what we understand was a decision taken at the recent governing body meeting to seek ‘converter’ academy status, following what we can only view as a ‘consultation’ process so flawed as to be meaningless ... We are very concerned about this decision. Academy schools have no accountability to the local community, and are a threat to comprehensive education. In addition, we are concerned about the pay and conditions in the school, should it become an Academy"
