All NEU members are set to walk out across the south of England on Wednesday, (March 15) and Thursday (March 16). Some schools have already announced full or partial closures, but as union members do not have to notify their employers until the day of the strike, many are still making contingency plans.

This week there will be a number of schools affected across the country as teachers are taking part in national strikes which will take place on different days. There are a number of schools across the Hampshire area that have already confirmed that they will be affected by the strikes.
