Teachers in Bromley are striking today, causing disruption to schools across the borough.

The walkout has been organised by the National Union of Teachers (NUT) and the National Association of Schoolmasters’ Union of Women Teachers (NASUWT) in a dispute with the government over pay, pensions and working conditions.

Parents are urged to call their child’s school to see if it will be closed.

The strike is over government plans which will see teachers unable to claim their pensions until they are 68, performance-related pay and workloads.
