THESE Essex schools have implemented closures in response to teachers deciding to take part in strike action.

Thousands of NEU members are expected to participate in two consecutive days of strike action across England starting tomorrow, Wednesday, March 15, in a long-running dispute over pay.

The strikes will follow a similar industrial action which impacted pupils in Essex and beyond at the beginning of this month. 

On the eve of teacher strikes across England, Gillian Keegan has written to unions representing teachers and school leaders to invite them to formal talks on Wednesday and Thursday this week if they suspend walkouts.

In an open letter to parents, Ms Keegan said: "The best thing the NEU could do for its members and children and young people would be to sit down and talk about pay.

"I will continue doing everything I can to end the disruption your family faces as quickly as possible, particularly because I know exams for older pupils are coming up fast."
