Members of NASUWT-The Teachers’ Union at Granville Academy in Swadlingcote will be taking the first of four planned days of strike action on Thursday (14 February).
 
This action is as a result of the failure of the Employer to respond to the deep concerns of teachers about adverse management practices at the school which are negatively impacting on their wellbeing and working conditions.
 
Chris Keates, General Secretary of the NASUWT, said:
 
“NASUWT members at Granville Academy have been left with no choice other than to take strike action due to the failure of their Employer to treat them as skilled professionals who are entitled to dignity at work.
 
“The NASUWT has deep concerns about the way in which policies around lesson observations, performance management and capability and disciplinary matters are being carried out which has contributed to a punitive climate in the school for teachers.
 
“We have sought at every stage to work with the Employer to resolve these concerns, but unfortunately the Employer has failed to respond positively.
 
“These are dedicated and committed teachers who want the best for the pupils they teach. They regret the disruption to pupils and parents but they have been left with no choice.
 
“Strike action can be avoided if the Employer will agree to work with us to find a resolution to these issues.”
