TEACHERS will strike over pay in England and Wales on seven dates in February and March, the National Education Union (NEU) has announced reports the BBC.

National strikes are scheduled for 1 February, 15 and 16 March. There are several regional dates too.

The NEU is the largest education union in the UK, and balloted about 300,000 teacher and support staff members in England and Wales.

The education secretary says she plans to meet union leaders later this week.

Head teachers are expected to take “all reasonable steps” to keep schools open for as many pupils as possible during a strike, according to Department for Education guidance.

Having received a letter re my son's attendance that stated "even missing 1 day can have a detrimental effect on his education" yet here we are teachers striking for at least 4 days, it seems they actually care little about our children's education and more about themselves.
