Members of the NUT and NASUWT teaching unions are taking part in national strike action this Thursday, which will affect local schools.

Schools are keeping parents informed about how this will impact them on the day, and so far we have been informed that Lionel Road Primary School and Green Dragon Primary School will be closed, as is the Green School.

Partially open:

Our Lady and St Johns RC Primary school
St Paul's CE Primary school
Gunnersbury Catholic School
Isleworth & Syon School for Boys (Academy)
Gumley House RC Convent School (Academy)
Chiswick School (Academy)
Brentford School for Girls (Academy)

Hounslow Council said it would have a borough-wide list of which schools would be closed on the council website.

More than 2,500 schools across the UK are affected by the one-day strike.

The NUT states that it "sincerely regrets the disruption that will be caused by strike action on Thursday (17 October) for children and parents. Teachers, however, feel they have no other choice to demonstrate their concerns about the Government’s proposals because Michael Gove:

  • has done nothing to address the crisis of low morale in the teaching profession which threatens the continued provision of high quality education in your child’s school;
  • is making changes to teachers’ pay, pensions and conditions that will make it harder for your child’s school to recruit and retain good teachers;
  • has not engaged in negotiations with us to seek to resolve our dispute."
