Union calls on Royal Borough teachers to attend Reading protest
An NUT strike in 2011

A protest march for all Berkshire-based members of the National Union of Teachers (NUT) is being held tomorrow in Reading town centre.

The NUT is calling on its 700 members from state funded schools in the Royal Borough to attend the march which will start at 10.45am at the Reading International Solidarity Centre (RISC) in London Street.

At midday protesters will march from Market Place and through the town.

Royal Borough NUT members are spread across approximately 80 schools in the local authority area.

There is no official NUT organised march taking place in the Windsor or Maidenhead area. 

The closest alternatives will be held in London and Guildford.

The day of striking has been initiated by the NUT over issues including working hours and pensions.

Reading NUT branch secretary Rob Ketley said: "All we can do is apologise for all inconvenience we cause to parents and emphasise the fact that we are trying very hard to engage Michael Gove."

Schools in the Royal Borough that will be partially open and require parents to check the school's website for details are:

  • Churchmead CE School
  • Dedworth Middle School
  • Furze Platt Junior School
  • Holyport CE Primary School
  • Newlands Girls' School
  • Windsor Boys School
  • Trevelyan Middle School

Schools that are partially open for years 11,12 and 13 are:

  • Altwood Academy
  • Cox Green Academy

Schools that are partially open for years 10, 11, 12 and 13 are:
